Problem with RTC News Feed Widget and Jenkins RSS feed

Marko Tomljenovic (31649109) | asked Feb 26 '16, 2:52 a.m.
I want to add a "News Feed" widget to my dashboard that shows me the content of the "Build failed" RSS feed from a certain Jenkins Build.

After configuring the RSS feed URL I get the following error message: 

An internal system error occurred while loading the feed: Unexpected response from http://jenkins..../rssFailed. Expected a 200 response code, but got 403. Please check your server configuration.

For getting the RSS content in the browser a login to Jenkins is required.
Is there any way to configure the user credentials in the widget so that the content can be properly fetched?

HTTP response 403 as you can Google means forbidden. Please check the feed URL you provide works in a browser.

This works for me in 6.0.1

I can only see the feed content in the browser if am logged in Jenkins. If I am not then the feed URL cannot be opened in the browser.

I can see the feed without logging in. I have security enabled. Please check if you can see the feed. I am not sure it is possible to provide a login with the feed widget.
