Application Link between JIRA 6.4.9 and Confluence 5.9.8

Hi folks,

I updated Confluence in my test environment from version 5.7.4 to 5.9.8. But now I get errors in my application link to JIRA 6.4.9.

In JIRA admin frontend I get the error

An error occurred when retrieving list of Application Links. Reason: 'java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: host must not be null'. Please check your server log for more information.

I am able to use the application link to create JIRA issues from confluence, the gadgets in confluence, the JIRA macro. But my plugins using the ApplicationLinkService won't work because it's always null.

I recreated the application link but I still get the same error.

Do I have to update JIRA too or is there a bug in Confluence 5.9.8 or in my settings?

Hello Robin,

The error may be related to configuration as such. I suspect you have proxy server running. Can you have a quick look at the knowledge base article https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRAKB/Application+Link+Authentication+Fails+Due+to+Bad+URL+Signature

BR,

Mike

 

Hi Mike,

Before I recreated the application link, I had a proxy running on my JIRA. But then I removed it and the error was still there. I restarted JIRA, the apache2 and then my server machine. In Confluence everything looks fine, just JIRA shows this message.

I searched with google and in your knowledge base, but I could not find a case with similar error. Should I open a support request for that?

I updated the JIRA on test environment to 7.0.10 and now there is no more error.

So maybe it was a configuration problem or some problem with the combination. I will have to reset my machines to same state as livesystem and test with a new confluence update.

The root cause is because Confluence is using Tomcat 8.0.36.

The fix is to add useRelativeRedirects="false" in the server.xml and restart Confluence

<Context path="" docBase="../confluence" debug="0" reloadable="false" useHttpOnly="true" useRelativeRedirects="false">

 

More details can be found at https://confluence.atlassian.com/kb/cannot-retrieve-link-and-provider-entity-when-creating-application-link-827117142.html.

Hope this helps.
