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

SSO for Crowd works via cookies for each application server. If you have more than one application running under the same context (in your case, the root context), the cookies will overwrite one another in the root context "/" and you will run into auth problems like this.

If you run your JIRA servers on separate contexts, it should clear up your issue. Example:
