Authentication option missing in fisheye


I am currently following this guide to reduce the number of users that have access to fisheye via external jira user directory according to this manual:


i cannot however find the edit button mentioned in the document.

Has anybody a clue how to set it up currently.

I am on Fisheye version:

FishEye 4.5.1 20171127103437
Crucible 4.5.1 20171127103437

Hi Sebastian,

The article you linked provides a solution for Fisheye v. 3.x. The user management structure changed from v3.x to v4.x.Thanks for bringing this to our attention, we will update it ASAP!

If you use a Jira user directory for user management, all users from your Jira directory will be synced with Fisheye. You can, however set which of those users can authenticate and have permission in Fisheye as follows:

  1. In your Jira instance, navigate to Administration > User Management > Groups
  2. Add a group called "fisheye-users".Screen Shot 2018-01-22 at 11.18.25 AM.png
    Note: If you name the group "fisheye-users", they will automatically have access to Fisheye/Crucible, when you sync this directory. If you decided to give the group a different name, please follow point 8. to manually assign permissions to that group. Make sure the sum of users who have permissions (in the new group and the default Fisheye internal group doesn't exceed your license number).
  3. Click on the "fisheye-users" group to manage which users belong to it by clicking Add/Remove Users
  4. Go to the Admin panel of your Fisheye instance.
  5. Navigate to User Settings > User Directories
  6. Click Synchronize to the right of your Jira directory.
  7. Navigate to Security Settings > Groups. Check that the users (and the number) in your fisheye-users group are correct.Screen Shot 2018-01-22 at 12.15.52 PM.png

  8. You can also check/set permissions for Groups under Security Settings > Global Permissions.
