We're using Bitbucket version 4.4.1 to manage git repositories in a local Windows server installation. The server is also host to a JIRA installation, which used LDAP user authentication. Both are being run as a Windows service.
I'm trying to get Bitbucket to use the JIRA user authentication and followed the instructions on the Connecting Bitbucket Server to JIRA for user management page, possibly incorrectly or incompletely. After completing that process, we can no longer log in to Bitbucket or access our git repositories.
I tried to log in with the Bitbucket administrator account, but was informed of an invalid username or password. The JIRA instance still works as expected.
I followed the Lockout recovery process instructions for Bitbucket, but get the same 'invalid username or password' error when attempting to log in with the 'recovery_admin' user and password (set in the `JVM_SUPPORT_RECOMMENDED_ARGS` environment variable in the `setenv.bat` file).
In step 3 of the Lockout recovery process, it says "Log in to Bitbucket Server": does this mean log in via the web user interface, or something else?
Where should I start looking for what is wrong?
atlassian-jira-security.log file I've found the following:
/rest/usermanagement/1/group/membership login: 'Bitbucket' tried to login but they do not have USE permission or weren't found. Deleting remember me cookie.
Do I need to create a 'Bitbucket' user in JIRA, in addition to the application in the JIRA User Server configuration?
I've restored the back-end MySQL database from before I made the change to the user authentication and still cannot log in, either as the old admin, or using the 'recovery_admin' account.
Regarding the lockout procedure for Bitbucket Server, since you're running on Windows and as a service, we'll need to add the
-Datlassian.recovery.password=temporarypassword flag to the service using the following steps:
Start >> Run >> type in 'cmd' >> Enter
cdto the bin directory of the Bitbucket installation directory
-Datlassian.recovery.password=temporarypasswordon it's own line under Java Options
Let me know if that allows you to access Bitbucket Server as the recovery account. I'll work on getting our documentation updated right now.
After logging in using the recovery process, we can try to recreate the link to the JIRA user server. It may also be helpful to look at the
atlassian-bitbucket.log to see any errors the are being thrown when users attempt to login.
Thanks very much Jeff, prompt, helpful and successful. I've now got Bitbucket using JIRA User Server for authentication. Plus, I've added a system administrator user to the internal directory, just in case the link to JIRA fails. (I might change the directory order, so that it tries the internal one first.)
The only, very minor snag, was that the short name for the service in our application was not
AtlassianBitbucket, so my first attempt to use the tomcat edit service command failed. It might be useful, to anyone unfamiliar with tomcat command line commands, to add a note or tip to the documentation on how to find the short name for the service.
As a project manager, I have discovered that different developers want to bring their previous branching method with them when they join the team. Some developers are used to performing individual wo...
