Cant download my Server licenses


I just purchased a server license for Jira Software, Jira Service Desk and Confluence. When I am in my account and try to download the Server Version my Browser responds with: "ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS".

This happens with Chrome, Firefox, Edge and Internet Explorer.

We switched off the company Firewall and my colleagues tryed it aswell. Everyone gets this message.

Since is purchased the "Starter" i cant get direct support from Atlassian (what a construct...).

I hope someone can help me!

Hi Chris,

I have not been able to recreate this problem of being unable to download these installation packages.  I even tried this over my own LTE network connection using a Verizon Cell provider here in the US.  In both cases, I was able to download these files without any of these errors.

It is not clear to me why your network connections might be experiencing this kind of reply.  While I am interested to try to troubleshoot this further to understand your environment, I also thought that perhaps we can work-around this problem by using another technique.

I was able to download these binary packages for all the products I saw your account had licenses for (Jira Software, Jira Service Desk, and Confluence).  I then uploaded these to my own Google Drive account and shared these tar.gz binary files.   Could you try to download these from this other link instead?

Back to the idea of troubleshooting this download problem.  Could you please try to run the following command in a terminal/command prompt and let me know the results:


In turn this should be able to tell us more about your specific network route that your request has to follow in order to be able to download these packages from one of our download mirrors.



Hi Andy,

the google drive download works without a problem. Thanks for that.

Somehow I have the feeling it has something to do with"" since you are from the US and Shannon from the netherlands you probably get redirected on something different.

This is the result of the CMD:

Routenverfolgung zu []
über maximal 30 Hops:

1 <1 ms <1 ms <1 ms


Different question apart from that:

When i get my Server-ID for the License am I able to reinstall Jira on a new server or is it bound to that server? In the next months we will have new servers where we would like to install Jira than.

Best regards


You only need the server id when you first want to generate the license key for the first time.  The license is not bound to that install or that specific machine.  So yes you can use that license on a different install later. 

Technically I believe the license agreement states that you cannot use the same license key simultaneously on two installs.   However Atlassian is not trying to make installations/migrations/upgrades more difficult than they need to be, so I would not expect you to have any problem with this.

You might also consider creating evaluation licenses for this first test installation.  Since it sounds like you might only use this first installation for a month that might work out since the evaluation licenses have a 30 day expiration window.   You can actually create these on

As for the traceroute results, mine resolve to the same hostname, but a different IP address.

I suspect that is due to the region I am in, but I will look to create an internal ticket with one of our product teams to see if they can further investigate if this might be a region specific problem with the mirror you are being directed to.   Sorry this is a problem still, but thanks for letting us know and thanks for sharing these results.

Hi Andy,

Thats good to know than we will start the installation tomorrow. Thanks for your response and the help aswell for the download links on google drive! 

You're welcome!

Best regards

Hi Chris,

Don't worry, we have Atlassian support staff on-hand to assist with Community issues as well so you will find you can get the same support here.

A few questions first about your situation:

  1. Are you also running behind a Proxy, and is that switched off as well?
  2. Is there a current whitelist?
  3. Is your user directory the internal one, or LDAP? If LDAP, when you switch off incremental synchronization, does the issue persist?

Thank you for the information you can provide.



Hi Shannon,

thanks for your response. We tried it outside of our company network and aswell with a proxy in the USA and neither works.

From my point of view it looks like a problem on your side.

Best regards,

Apologies, Chris. I thought you had installed the server version already and were receiving that error when you try to access Jira, which is another common issue.

Can you let me which version of the Server download you were trying to access? I want to test it for you but I'll need to know the URL you were accessing.



No problem!

It doesn't matter if i try to download Jira Software or Service Desk or Confluence. I get the same error with each link for example:


Best regards


Thank you for clarifying.

It's very odd; I've tested this on my home computer outside of the Atlassian network and I also do not receive the error.

If you also try from this page, do you have the same error?

Jira Download Archives

Lastly, I understand you tested without the firewall and proxy but if you were to test on a non-company computer completely outside of your company network can you reproduce the error?

You can also have Developer Tools > Network tab open and it might give us more information about what is causing this.



Hi Shannon,

That link does not work either. Yes i have tested it on a non-company computer completely outside of our company network. I tested it with a mobile device via LTE aswell and get the same error.

Under Developer Tool > Network nothing happens but 3 png images
