    a. Finding correct attributes
  • Go to Configure IDP tab. Scroll down and click on Test Configuration.
  • You will see all the values returned by your IDP to Fisheye/Crucible in a table. If you don't see value for First Name, Last Name, Email or Username, make the required settings in your IDP to return this information.
  • Once you see all the values in Test Configuration, keep the window open and go to User Profile tab.
  • b. Setting profile attributes
  • In this tab, fill the values by matching the name of the attribute. For instance, if the Attribute Name in the Test Configuration window is NameID, enter NameID against Username
  • Setting up both Username and Email is required if you want to let users register. If you want existing users to the only login, configure the attribute using which you will match the user in Fisheye/Crucible.
  • c. Matching a User
    When the user logs into Fisheye/Crucible, one of the user's data/attribute coming in from the IDP is used to search the user in Fisheye/Crucible. This is used to detect the user in Fisheye/Crucible and log in the user to the same account.
  • Go to User Profile tab
  • Select Username or Email for Login/Search Fisheye/Crucible user account by
  • Enter the attribute name from IDP which corresponds to Username or Email using Finding Correct Attributes

Step 4: Assigning groups to users

    We will be setting up user group attributes for Fisheye. If your users are stored in a directory that is Read Only, please check Disable Group Mapping in User Groups tab and skip to Setting default group.

  • Just like we found Attribute Name for User Profile attributes, we find group attribute.
  • Go to Configure IDP tab. Scroll down and click on Test Configuration.
  • You will see all the values returned by your IDP to Fisheye/Crucible in a table. If you don't see value with groups, make the required settings in your IDP to return group names.
  • Once you see all the values in Test Configuration, keep the window open and go to User Groups tab.
  • Enter the Attribute Name of group against Group Attribute
  • At the bottom of the page, all groups in Fisheye/Crucible are shown. You can map groups in IDP which correspond to Fisheye/Crucible groups. For example, if you want all users in dev-ops and dev groups in IDP to be added to crucible-users, you will need to enter dev-ops;dev against crucible-users
  • If you want user mapping to work for only limited groups in Fisheye/Crucible, check the option Update User Groups

  • b. Setting default group
