It accepts credentials and allowed me to bypass basic HTTP authentication as a SERVER_CONTROL_USER, but all I got is:
UI Access denied. See https://github.com/kopia/kopia/issues/880#issuecomment-798421751 for more information.
But this link is related more to KOPIA_SERVER_USERNAME that works fine and allow to see web UI, the same as with kopiaUI. I understand that KOPIA_SERVER_USERNAME is a client to particular instance of repository and can be used in the same way as kopiaUI with given local repository, but what is SERVER_CONTROL_USER is for?
BTW, the mentioned option --allow-repository-users referenced in the issue #880 is unknown in recent 0.10.6 version of kopia, as well it isn’t present in any source files and as result attempt to login as registered repository user (created with kopia server user add xxx@zzz) to the server instance directly (not from remote machine that is subject to back to kopia’s repository server) it failed too and returns link to issue #880
