Description

{panel:bgColor=#e7f4fa} NOTE: This suggestion is for Confluence Server. Using Confluence Cloud? [See the corresponding suggestion|http://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONFCLOUD-21127]. {panel}

This is an improvement request to allow specifying which user to be used in trusted connection with JIRA.

Proposed example next to the documented examples in [Jira Issues Macro|http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/JIRA+Issues+Macro] bq. Anonymous=false: EITHER use the user credentials defined by the Administrator OR if they're not present then use the user's credentials

In short allow Confluence to use a specific username to communicate with JIRA regardless of the credentials of the user viewing the page.
