How to use Basic Authentication for Wallboards ?


I'm trying to display Jira Wallboards on a TV. However the software I use to manage what appears on TV only accept a URL to fetch.

I was thinking about using Basic Authentication but I get a 401 when I try to reach https://{user}:{password}@{mycompany}{dashboardID}&os_authType=basic


Is there something seetting I need to enable ?

Hey Johan,

I'm using that exact method and it works.

Do you use any special characters on your username or password? If so, you will need to URL encode them, otherwise it won't work (at least it didn't for me).

Hi Eduardo, Johan

Is still working your method? I'm not able to access using similar URL (with my own credentials).


Thanks in advance!

Hey Javier,

Not anymore :(, since some time ago. I remember searching for alternatives and I couldn't find one. I think it stopped working once Atlassian ID was enabled.
