Creating global password for all repositories in FishEye.


We have more than 100 repositories in FishEye and all of them using same credential (functional account) for checkout. The password for this account expires every 3 months and we have to modify it in each repository separately which is  very cumbersome. Is there a way we can store this credential at one place like globally, So that when password expires we have to modify it only once.

Repository credentials are stored in config.xml. You can edit this file directly and just use find&replace to update the password. Restart the server after updating this file.

Hi Nilesh,

This is currently not possible within the application itself. As Marek suggested, you can modify the config.xml file, to change attributes for the <repository> elements (the exact attribute differs depending on the repository type and authentication method, you'll probably want 'password').

There's also a feature request to allow managing shared repository credentials in the application at Please vote for it and leave your comment there.

Best regards,

Łukasz Pater
