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 Configure Jira 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:


  3. Restart the Dimensions CM server.
