Enforce SSO and can't login anymore

Hi Atlassian Support Team, 
unfortunatly I can't login anymore. I've configured SSO with Azure Active Directory but now I can't login anymore to the Admin Portal. 
I get the message: 
Hmm... we're having trouble logging you in. You'll need to talk to your organization admin - tell them we sent you, and that there appears to be an issue with the SAML public key used for your SAML single sign-on configuration.
I'm the organization admin but I can't change anything in the configuration as I'm not able to login. The only problem I can imagine is, that there is a space in public key I've added. 

Can you please help me?

The error you notice is due to an incorrect certificate uploaded to SAML configuration at Atlassian organization.

For the next attempt to configure SAML, please make sure the certificate downloaded from Azure is the correct certificate before uploading to SAML configuration. 

One of the ways to ensure the certificate is by decoding the certificate here: and confirming it displays:

Common Name: Microsoft Azure Federated SSO Certificate

Disabled SAML in Azure and could login again.
