Passing authentication ldap for connection to Jira


#1

Hello
is it possible to use the LDAP information to connect to Jira via Testrail ?
Tesrail and Jira are already synchronized with the LDAP.
LDAP passwords change frequently and we need to change it for each user in the Testrail settings. (jira_user)

Hi Christian,

Thanks for your posting. If you have set up the login/authentication via LDAP, TestRail would only use it to authenticate users but does not save the credentials in the database. So, it’s not directly possible to reuse the credentials for the JIRA integration but it would be possible to manage those via the defect variables (which you may have already set up):
