Cause

No such interface 'org.freedesktop.Secret.Collection' on object at path /org/freedesktop/secrets/collection/login - this error is related to Gnome keyring on CentOS, unable to unlock Gnome-keyring at logon. 

Environment

Release : 3.0

Component : BRIGHTSIDE ZOWE CLI

Resolution

If login method is neither SSH nor password login over TTY then the PAM module to automatically unlock the Gnome keyring at logon won't work.

After configuring the PAM module to unlock the keyring at logon, a machine restart is necessary on CentOS. Alternatively, if using SSH and restarting the machine is inconvenient, restart sshd (the SSH daemon).

If automatically unlocking the keyring at logon still fails, run the following commands to manually unlock the keyring :
export $(dbus-launch)
gnome-keyring-daemon -r --unlock --components=secrets
The second command will prompt for password. Press Ctrl+D twice when user finished typing. Including the "-r" flag should restart any existing keyring daemon that may be in a bad state.
