How can I set jira.websudo.is.disabled to false?

https://confluence.atlassian.com/jira/configuring-secure-administrator-sessions-231343939.html states that the default setting of this property is "false". In my JIRA Installation it is set to "true" although I never wrote that into any configuration file.

I suspect, that it is stored in the database. The initial content of this database was created by import of an cloud backup.

I want to set it back to the default for increasing security.

Hey Matthias,

                    I agree with Steve, By default websudo is enabled. To disable it, you have to edit a jira-config.properties file to 

jira.websudo.is.disabled = true

Hallo Chander,

I think you have missunderstood my question.

In my installation it is jira.websudo.is.disabled == true, for whatever reason. So Websudo is disabled! This deviates from the default setting as mentioned in the doc. If I have a look into the database:

jira=# select propertyvalue from propertyentry pe, propertynumber ps where pe.id=ps.id and pe.ENTITY_NAME='jira.properties' and propertytype='1' and property_key='jira.websudo.is.disabled';
 propertyvalue
---------------
             1
(1 row)

I've tried to set it by configuration file to the desired value: 

~/> cat /opt/atlassian/home/jira/jira-config.properties 
jira.websudo.is.disabled = false

But this doesn't work. atlassian-jira.log still contains "jira.websudo.is.disabled                      : true"

 

Cheers

Matthias

 

Matthias,

If you delete the entries you found in the propertyentry and propertynumber tables it will allow JIRA to pull from the default setting as you want to re-enable websudo.

The database takes precedence over any value found in jpm.xml and jira-config.properties file.

By default WebSudo is enabled. You need to change it to false as the documentation indicates.

Secure administrator sessions (i.e. password confirmation before accessing administration functions) are enabled by default.
