Why am I unable to login to Jenkins when using RBAC and Crowd 2 Plugin?


Jenkins starts, but now I am unable to log in. We are using crowd2.hpi. With authentication against Atlassian Crowd.


  • CloudBees Jenkins Enterprise 1.580.2.1
  • Crowd 2 Plugin 1.8
  • RBAC


To be able to log on you must be member of a group defined for ‘restrict groups’ in Crowd2 config. This filed could be empty before but is needed now, then log on works, and RBAC can be enabled and seems to work too.

Have more questions?
