Is there an update on this? I see the article Disabling basic authentication, but that is only for Jira and Bitbucket.
In which future version will the feature to disable basic auth in Confluence Server be released? Or will it only be in Data Center?
I see in the Preparing for Confluence 7.13 that this is "In Progress" with a link to the article I mentioned above.
We plan to provide admins the ability to disable basic authentication, and will be recommending any integrations use personal access tokens instead. Learn more about disabling basic authentication.
