Configuring a Perforce repository to shared user

We are evaluating Cruicible and I'd like to set up a connection to a Perforce repository. I set this up for a test Perforce repository and just used my username/password for the connection. But I'd rather use a "service account" we have named "shared". "shared" has no password and usually we can use this unlimited time user by specifying a path to a Perforce tickets file that has a long expiring ticket for Perforce. However I cannot find how to get this setup for Cruicble which is a web service. Do I need to attempt to configure Apache to put the env var of P4TICKETS pointing to a p4tickets file into Apache's environment. Or is there some other trick to this.

I've tried specifying "shared" and no password (or even a dummy password) and when I test connection I get:

Perforce Server Version: P4D/NTX64/2014.1/871904 (2014/06/03)

Perforce Server Time: 2014/07/09 10:56:03 -0700 Pacific Daylight Time

Just noticing that the error message says "User crucible doesn't exist". Really? On which machine exactly? Cause it does exists on the Linux server running Crucible.

I tried to configure my production instance just like my test instance using my username/password so people can at least evaluate things but when I try doing this I get the same error as above! It works on test and complains on production!
