Authenticate to Jira using Dimensions CM credentials
As an alternative to using OAuth, you can use Dimensions CM authentication credentials (user ID and password) when setting up authentication to Jira.
- Jira is hosted as a Server (not in the Cloud).
- The Dimensions CM and Jira user ID and password match.
- The Jira provider has basic authentication enabled. For details, see Add Jira as a request provider.
To use Dimensions CM authentication credentials:
Open the Dimensions CM server dm.cfg configuration file. The default locations are:
Windows <install_dir>/Dimensions<version>/CM/dm.cfg UNIX <install_dir>/dimensions/cm/dm.cfg
In the server configuration file, add this variable:
- Restart the Dimensions CM server.
