Initially we had both our Jira and Confluence installations on the same machine and integration bewteen the two worked fine. However, I've had to move Confluence to a different server for various reasons, and now when I try and use Jira for use administration it doesn't work.
When I enter http://my.jira.com:8080 (our Jira base URL) into the integration wizard I get an error saying "This is not a valid url for JIRA 4.3 or later". I have no idea what is casuing this, since it was working when they were on the same system and I've verified the user information is correct. I'm running Confluence 4.0.
I wound up just moving the Jira installation to the same system as Confluence. I was able to access both the Jira and Confluence servers on the correct ports when they were still seperated. I didn't try using the IP, but I don't think that would have worked since then inserting Jira issues into Confluence pages would not have worked correctly, since they would use that IP instead of the correct URL.
Thanks for the help.
I had this problem with JIRA 5.0.6 and Confluence 4.2.5 as well. Dempset Moore and Sander Brienen are correct in looking for the connectivity issue. I get the impression that the error message is a bit of a red herring and that most people receive the "This is not a valid url for JIRA 4.3 or later" error due to a networking issue.
In my case, because I am on a private network doing standalone installations one one machine, I needed to update my hosts file to recognize the hostname of the server. Kind of weird, but it worked.
I am running 64 bit FreeBSD 9 with no troubles so far into Stage 3 of the Dragon Quest.
Solved in my case by following : Unable to Add Application Links via HTTPS
