Where security isn’t enough for jenkins


recently I set up a Jenkins server with login removed, and I got complains from the higher ups that it is the wrong way of doing things, so I have to add it back.

unfortunately when I check the jenkins config.xml, useSecurity is changed to true yet the application still disable login. So what I did is that I download a separate localhost jenkins to do a file comparison, and low and behold, there are other changes needed to revert back the login.

Please ensure that your Jenkins config.xml has the following setup:


  <authorizationStrategy class="hudson.security.FullControlOnceLoggedInAuthorizationStrategy">



  <securityRealm class="hudson.security.HudsonPrivateSecurityRealm">
