Yes, but only in local closed network. Don’t remove it please.

We don’t have plans to remove it - we’re just trying to understand who are using them.

Mix of usage of this and other auth methods, but for many cases with ‘Server’ installs, it makes for much quicker and easier API usage that can easily translate to curl CLI usage. That combined with curl and other tool ability to prompt for creds means you can keep working from command line history/etc. without having to worry about anything sensitive being left around in history or on screen.

Are you looking for cloud, data center/server or both?

Jira Server / Data Center (this is in the Jira Server space right?) :smiley:

We blocked the ability to make requests using basic auth at the nginx level, two-factor authentication is not possible with it.

Is this for Server/Datacenter or Cloud?
