Application Link between Jira and Fisheye with disabled anonymous access


we use Jira together with several other Atlassian products through application links.

Our Fisheye is linked with Jira, but we want to disable the anonymous access to Fisheye, so that only logged-in users can see our repositories. However, the application link isn't working correctly anymore since it apparently using anonymous access for gathering the information.

Example error message:

"Sorry, there are no links available when using anonymous access, check the permission configuration of the remote application."

Is there a way to disable the anonymous access without losing the functionilty of our application link between Jira and Fisheye?

Hi Martin,

You will need to configure authentication for the application link. This page describes how to configure an OAuth application link in FishEye - this will hide informtaino in JIRA from anonymous users, but logged in users who also have an account on FishEye will be able to authenticate against FishEye and see the Source and Reviews tab.

Kind Regards,

Hi Richard,

we use a Trusted Application link between Jira and Fisheye. Shouldn't this work similarly?

Furthermore, the Jira Fisheye Plugin doesn't refresh the Repository List Cache since we disabled the anonymous access in Fisheye.

Best Regards,


Hi there,

we encountered the very same problem. Application Link has been configured according to the docs, but without "anonymous access" enabled, the source tab in jira doesn't work.

Implementing OAuth shouldn't be necessary when using crowd, right?!

Did anyone come up with a solution?



Jira: v6.0.3

Fisheye: v3.0.3
