Configuring XSRF protection

To prevent users being tricked into unintentionally submitting malicious data, Bamboo uses XSRF security protection.

Atlassian supported plugins have been updated to support XSRF. XSRF protection is enabled by default for Atlassian Cloud customers and new customers for Bamboo Server, however, if you are using a plugin that is not yet compatible with this security feature, you can disable it.

 Please carefully consider the security risks before you disable XSRF protection in your Bamboo installation.

To configure XSRF protection:

  1. Click the  icon in the Bamboo header and choose  Overview.
  2. Choose Security settings in the left-hand panel.
  3. Choose Edit.
  4. Uncheck Enable XSRF protection to disable XSRF protection or check it to enable XSRF protection.
  5. Choose Save.

XSRF protection was introduced in Bamboo 5.3, and is enabled automatically for all existing and new Atlassian Cloud users. Existing Bamboo Server users can enable XSRF protection by following the instructions above and checking Enable XSRF protection.
