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.

Prerequisites:

  • 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:

  1. 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
  2. In the server configuration file, add this variable:

    DM_JIRA_USE_CM_CREDS Y

  3. Restart the Dimensions CM server.
