Im getting confused recently about writing a custom seraph authenticator for JIRA.
I installed the keycloak adapters for jiras tomcat
edited the valve in context.xml,
modified jiras web.xml with security constraints,
what leads to gettin redirected from our protected resource (jira) to keycloak for authentication. Unfortunately Seraph can’t interprete the cookie we get from keycloak and the com.atlassian.jira.security.login.SSOSeraphAuthenticator seems to only work with CROWD, we need a custom authenticator class.
Following the instructions on seraphs documentation im not sure whether to extend jiras DefaultAuthenticator class or whatever I’ve got to provide to seraph that lets me log in. Probably need to get the credentials Seraph needs out of the keycloak token that gets send with the browser request?
If anyone who is familiar with authenticators and/or especially jiras seraph could provide any additional information or examples, it would be very much appreciated! =)
Thanks in advance,
