Bamboo Database (PostgreSQL) setup wizard error - Ident authentication failed for user
Bamboo shows the following error when trying to set up Bamboo to use a PostgreSQL database:
Error accessing database: FATAL: Ident authentication failed for user Bamboo
This is an error that is coming from PostgreSQL.
Trying to connect to PostgreSQL from command line shows the same error message, which means that the issue is not caused by Bamboo. Follow the recommendation from this page: edit
the /var/lib/pgsql/data/pg_hba.conf file and change
trust, then restart postgres:
# TYPE DATABASE USER CIDR-ADDRESS METHOD # "local" is for Unix domain socket connections only local all all trust # IPv4 local connections: host all all 127.0.0.1/32 trust host all all 18.104.22.168/32 trust # IPv6 local connections: host all all ::1/128 ident
