Jenkins Unable to Clone Stash Repository

Jeff Thomas Atlassian Team Oct 10, 2013

We're having trouble getting Jenkins to clone any of our Stash repositories over HTTP or HTTPS.

The URL in the Jenkins job is http://stash.company.com:7990/scm/project/repo.git, when the job is run, we get the following error in Jenkins:

We require authentication for our repos and I'm currently trying to use a .netrc file to send the username and password. I've also tried passing the username and password in the URL (ie. http://user:pass@stash.company.com:7990/scm/project/repo.git).

Catalina.out for Jenkins seems to indicate that it's using an "Atlassian Stash" user.

INFO: basic authentication scheme selected
Oct 10, 2013 4:10:13 PM org.apache.commons.httpclient.HttpMethodDirector processWWWAuthChallenge
INFO: No credentials available for BASIC 'Atlassian Stash'@stash.company.com:7990

I am able to clone the repository from the command line running as the Jenkins user.

git clone http://stash.company.com:7990/scm/project/repo.git

What am I doing wrong?

I turned on SSH in Stash and used that instead of HTTP, it's now working.
