Or we could configure Fisheye using the same username field as JIRA, but set up username mapping. But it seems like you need to set this up manually for each user and repository, which I'd rather not maintain.
What's the best way to set this up?
UPDATE: Does it even matter if they have different usernames? I've tried it, and I don't see any places where it causes problems. It seems like it uses OAuth tokens to link the two, rather than common usernames. Am I missing something?
