Fisheye authentication problem


I've Crowd 2.5.3 and Fisheye 3.7.1 running on separate machines. I've configured Fisheye to authenticate against Crowd but for some reason the users can't authenticate. The log confirms the handshake between Fisheye and Crowd and from what I see, the Crowd responds with a session information (successful validation of password?) but Fisheye simply refuses to go past the login screen.

I used the 'Authentication Test' feature in Crowd to make sure the users are able to login to the Fisheye instance.

I solved the problem. It appeared that the Secure SSO cookie was enabled in Crowd and the Fisheye wasn't using SSL/TLS. When I added a SSL certificate for Fisheye, it all worked out as expected!


Actually I've got it to work with SSO disabled. But doesn't work when SSO is enabled. Not sure what I'm doing wrong here..
