"Server Stash requires authentication. Authenticate to see additional information."

After upgrading to JIRA 6.2.4 users are presented with the following message when attempting to access either the "All" tab or the "Source" tab.

"Server Stash requires authentication. Authenticate to see additional information."

Is there a way to avoid this authentication request that's presented to users or is there any future plans to allow these tabs to populate via Basic Auth?

Our JIRA and Stash servers are currently set up with both 2 legged OAuth and Basic Auth.

We have tried changing the OAuth to execute as a specific user (the Basic Auth credentialed user) however that did not change the prompt.

The DB servers are internal db for JIRA and Crowd db for Stash so impersonation is not implemeneted.

Any information or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Ryan, by definition the 2 legged OAuth should not require authentication, but it should be used when both application have the same users base. If you don't have the same set of users in your applications you may face problems.

Also, I see you mention that you have OAuth and Basic Auth, it's recommended to have only one authentication method enabled at a time for inbound and outbound communication. You may disable other authentication methods if you intend to use OAuth.

Cheers
