Bad URL in JIRA email

I received an email from you saying:  "JIRA is the project tracker for teams building great software. Log in now to track your issues and tasks, collaborate with your team, and stay on top of project activity." There was a green button saying "Set My Password". When I click on it I go to a website that says this: 

REQUEST DENIED. Refer to for details.


I'd love to sign up with this, how do I do it?

In particular, in the onboarding email for new users.

There is a bug raised to fix this:

But, unfortunately this is too late for you sad

Please contact your JIRA administrator and / or raise a support ticket at
