Unable to login to Confluence through Okta (SSLHandshakeException error) Edited



I am trying to setup Confluence behind load balancer in AWS and Okta. When I am trying to login via Okta, I am unable to do so. To be more specific, I am being stuck on refirect page from Okta to Confluence (image is attached). When I looked at logs in  /var/atlassian/application-data/confluence/logs/atlassian-confluence.log 

2017-07-24 02:44:12,709 WARN [http-nio-8090-exec-2] [internal.integration.jira.DefaultJiraService] communicateWithJira Problem communicating with JIRA: javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: sun.security.validator.ValidatorException: PKIX path building failed: sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException: unable to find valid certification path to requested target

We are running Active Directory and I imported its certificate into keystore. The only missing piece I could think of is try to point confluence to correct keystore in setenv.sh ( -Djavax.net.ssl.trustStore=<path_to_keystore> ).Did anyone have similar problems configuring Confluence with Okta?

Any help is appreciated.

Not sure what SSL problems has to do with Okta integration?



Is does affect Okta. AD only allows port 636 which is encrypted, so this is where SSL cert from domain controller becomes crititcal.

Your cert needs to be imported to the java used by your application:



I have configured CATALINA_OPTS="-Djavax.net.ssl.trustStore=/opt/atlassian/confluence/jre/lib/security/cacerts" argument in setenv.sh 

What I am surpsised about is seeing an error related to Jira while I am configuring Confluence. 

If you are using self signed ssl certificates on both JIRA, and Confluence with application links, then you`ll need to import certificates to both applications.
