Hi @yoki89 

Thank you for reaching out to Atlassian Community!

I assume that your problem is related to connecting Jenkins with Crowd as you are getting `InvalidCrowdServiceException`.

This error is being thrown if the response does not contain following HTTP header


I've noticed that your URL starts with: 


and does not contain /crowd context path. Although it is possible to run Crowd without /crowd context path, can you check if the URL is correct? Perhaps you could check if header I've mentioned is being sent by running:

curl -v http://servername:8095/rest/usermanagement/1/search?entity-type=user&start-index=0&max-results=1&expand=user

Best Regards,

Marcin Kempa
