Connecting to MS SQL with Windows Credentials for Fogbugz Import


I have installed a trial version of JIRA 7.2.4 using the embedded database and am trying out data migration from Fogbugz 8.855.0 to JIRA 7.2.4.

I get a "Login failed for user <Domain>\<username>" when I try to connect to the Fogbugz MS SQL database using my Windows credentials.

How can I fix this?

Hi Yusef,

I would recommend to try to connect to the MS SQL database using mixed mode authentication and create a database user to use for this. There are some known issues using the jtds driver to connect to MS SQL with Windows Auth.

We've switched to a new driver in Jira 7.5, we now use the Microsoft JDBC Driver 6.2.1 for SQL Server. This driver may give you better results for using Windows Authentication here.


Best regards,
