JIRA RSS feed problem

Postby dwsmith2 » Fri Apr 27, 2012 11:12 am

I'm trying to get the RSS feed into Google Reader from the activity gadget on the JIRA dashboard, but I'm having difficulties. When I put in the full address, https://tech.lds.org/jira/activity?maxResults=10&streams=&os_authType=basic, Google Reader won't recognize the feed. But if I delete any character after the last /, say the "c" in basic or the & after streams=, then a feed shows up, but not the feed from my activity stream. Any ideas?

When I went to the LDSTech JIRA instance, I was not signed in. The RSS link I saw for the activity stream was simply https://tech.lds.org/jira/activity?maxResults=10&streams= (there was no "&os_authType=basic" parameter included). When I pasted that URL into Google Reader, it worked immediately -- but the only project I could see a feed for was the STACK project (since it is the only one visible without signing in).

After I signed in, my RSS link changed to have that os_authType parameter. Using that URL, I could duplicate the problem you saw.

Google Reader doesn't support authenticated RSS feeds (and even if it did, I don't think you'd want to enter your LDS Account username and password into it so that it could retrieve that authenticated RSS feed), so I don't think you're going to be successful getting the whole RSS feed from LDSTech Jira into Google Reader.
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.
