Hi Super24,

I'd advise you to open a ticket on https://support.atlassian.com. You should attach your logs also in order to speed up the process so the support engineers already have more information to investigate this.

Hope this helps,

Marcus Silveira

As Super24 discovered, this is a known issue, due to multiple cwd_user_credential_record entries being created for one user. It is being tracked here:

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CWD-1979

The details for how to diagnose and work around this problem are in a KB article here:
