On install Confluence: This is not a valid url for JIRA 4.3 or later

Jira installed on a server with Ubuntu 12.10.

I installed and chose to integrate Confluence users but with Jira returns me the error "This is not a valid url for JIRA 4.3 or later."

I've tried with the host that points to the server, with localhost, and IP network, without success.

How do I work?

Hi Eduardo,

Actually this problem is pretty easy to fix.

I wrote a KB for this problem as you can see here: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONFKB/Unable+to+Set+Up+the+User+Management+During+the+Installation

This will definitely help you.



Hi Eduardo,

It sounds like you are setting up Confluence to use JIRA's user database, but the URL is invalid. Just to get some more background on what is going on here, can you answer these questions:

* What URL are you entering under "JIRA Base URL" in step4?
* Does that URL work if you access it in a web browser?
* Is that JIRA version 4.3 or later?


I removed and reinstalled the installation again.

He reaches in "Load users and groups from JIRA" and simply stop. The "Next" button becomes inactive and the images do not load.

Below, an image of the error.



Are there any errors in the logs on both sides? Are you using OpenJDK? If so switch to Oracle's. Which version of Java are you using?

I would setup Confluence locally and connect to JIRA after so it's easier to debug.
