Received an invalid cluster message to invalidate user

We upgraded from JIRA Software 7.1.1 to JIRA DataCenter 7.3.3 and now every so often we see an odd message in the logs.  I have not been able to track it down.  It seems to happen right around the time we are synchronizing with Active Directory.  

Has anyone else seen an error message like this in JIRA and if so, how did you resolve it?

We have the same issue and I would like to ask if you have got any kind of resolution from the Atlassian support team? 

Please let me know how you have resolved this issue.


Thank You!

The case went stale because of priorities.  We were not able to tie the error message to any user issue and it dropped like a rock to the bottom of my queue. I still see this issue after upgrading to Jira 7.4.2  When things calm down after I finish my current project load, I may be able to send Atlassian a scrubbed copy of our database for review.

My guess is that it is caused by 1 or more of the following:

  1. multiple domains being synched
  2. multiple domain controllers for each domain
  3. being configured to hit the domain instead of the Atlassian recommended FQDN of a single domain controller (because who needs redundancy?)
  4. multiple Jira directories synching the 
  5. a misbehaving domain controller

Are any of the items similar in your environment?

I am getting the same error. I guess it is due to user account conflicts. I had a local user with same email ID as my external user directory. But can't figure out to clear this error.


Tried few things by updating email address and name etc. But no luck

We are also getting the same error.

We have the same error for Jira 8.5.3

I understand you are working with the JIRA support team to resolve this on I look forward to hearing the result of the investigation.
