Can not add JIRA users in Confluence

Hi, when i tried to add JIRA Users in Confluence i got this error:Capture 2017-12-04 at 17.07.45.png

I am using JIRA 6.3.10 and Confluence 6.5.0.

What it can be? Thanks!

Hi Stanislav,

The ApplicationPermissionException is probably a whitelist issue in the Jira setup. Please see the resolution on: Exception when delegating user management to JIRA

I am concerned that the response from Jira has those garbled characters. If you still have trouble connecting Confluence to Jira for user management after configuring the whitelist, please make sure compression is disabled in both applications. For JIra: Gzip compression as in Configuring JIRA application options and for Confluence, http compression: Compressing an HTTP Response within Confluence.

I look forward to hearing whether you can connect to Jira as expected after configuring the whitelist and compression options.




Hi, thanks you.

But i turned off compressions in all applications and checked my whitelist and all connections is good, i mean  incoming and outgoing. And it didn't help me.

Hi Stanislav,

I understand you went into Jira User Server in Jira and verified that the whitelist contained the IP address of the Confluence server. You also turned off compression for both Confluence and Jira, but you still see the same error message when you are creating the User Directory for JIra in Confluence.

Please check the application logs for each application for related errors. The Jira log is: 

  • The Jira Home Directory is defined in <Jira_Install_Directory>/atlassian-jira/WEB-INF/classes/

The Confluence log to check is:

  • The Confluence Home directory is the path defined in the following file: <confluence_install>/confluence/WEB-INF/classes/

Please post any error messages you find to this thread so I can help investigate. Especially any entries that include:

Connection test failed. Response from the server:

Please check any stack traces you find for a "caused by" line so we can hopefully get a more detailed understanding of why the ApplicationPermissionException error is being returned by Jira.
