It cannot be done from administration panel. You should write it directly to the file as follows.

This problem has solved yet.

Hello,

Looking through your Stack Trace, this problem could be related to your resource name and JNDI name.

You must name your JNDI path according to the resource name in your server.xml. In this case:

mail/GmailSmtpServer. Therefore, my JNDI path would be java:comp/env/mail/GmailSmtpServer.

Cheers

JDNI path is java:comp/env/mail/JiraGMailServer. I tried also java:comp/env/mail/GmailSmtpServer. It gives the same error.

Here is the solution:

You should change the settings from server.xml manually.

Cheers :)

I had the same problem and noticed a trailing space in the JDNI text and once I removed it, it worked. Giuliano's post helped, thanks.
