Deprecation Notice: Login/Password Authentication in the API Replaced with Token-based Authentication

We would like you to be informed that the login/password authentication method previously available in the API has been replaced with token-based authentication. This will help improve the security of your plugins. We ask that you switch to the new auth method as soon as possible.

The JetBrains Hub authentication policies have changed as we’ve introduced mandatory two-factor authentication. For this reason, the login/password option for publishing your plugins to via the API will stop working on August 26, 2019.

If you are using plugin-repository-rest-client or gradle-intellij-plugin, you should pass the token instead of both username and password.

Should you have any questions, feel free to write to us at or leave a comment to this blog post.

Happy Developing!
The JetBrains Marketplace Team
