Fixing Eclipse Mylar jira integration

11 May 2006 by @ahtik

Be aware that when adding new jira source to Mylar with HTTPS protocol then you MIGHT get error saying host not found or wrong username&password.

The reason for this could be missing certificate in your trusted keystore.

Here's how to fix it:

  1. Run: openssl s_client -connect your.secured.host.com:https
  2. Copy-paste certificate from previous output to text-file (for example /tmp/key2trust.pem).
    Be sure to include BEGIN and END CERTIFICATE rows!!
  3. Run: keytool -import -alias your.secured.host.com -keystore
    /home/ahtik/.eclipsekeystore -file /tmp/key2trust.pem
  4. Edit eclipse.ini in eclipse home dir to have -Djavax.net.ssl.trustStore=/home/ahtik/.eclipsekeystore
  5. Start Eclipse and be sure to run with Java 5!
  6. Let me now if it didn't help.
