How do I set up SSO with crowd and two jira instances on the same box?


I am setting up crowd and two instances of Jira on the same domain:

Crowd is using port 8095 :

Jira 1 is using port 8080 :

Jira 2 is using port 8081 :

I can have Crowd handle centralized authentication no problem. But when I try to turn on SSO with the domain, I initially get success -- I can log into one jira -- and then the other jira without logging in again. But if I log out, I am locked out of all both jiras and also crowd. I understand from reading that this is likely due to incorrect domain settings. I've tried both '' and ''.

Any tips?

I am using Jira 5 and Crowd 2.4

What are the url's of the applications? are they like or e.g.
