Actually, it looked like the problem was that I did not have the Base URL set correctly.

That looks like you have set it up successfully, then tried to connect an external user directory, but that connection is failing?

Is that right, you've got through the setup ok?

It seemed to set up ok.  I am trying to connect it to a previously set up and working JIRA on site  instance.  Which I am assuming what you mean by an external user directory.
