Jira Mac app stuck on the login screen...

Hi all,


I've just installed the Mac app for Jira (on Big Sur) and when I select the Log In prompt, the Mac pops up a warning ' wants to use "" to sign in." When I select continue, it just jumps back to the login screen. Can't seem to get past this. Any insight?

Just for everybody reading this question. This was an actual bug on the operating system that was fixed by Apple in the latest Beta (10) .

Please upgrade your OS to the latest Beta and the problem will be solved.

Hello @Critter Critter

Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Checking the official page of Jira Mac app, it points out that the macOS Catalina is required to use the App, so I believe a new version for macOS Big Sur 11.0 was not released yet, which is expected as the new release of the OS is still on its beta version.

Anyway, could you please provide us with a video reproducing the behavior? We will try to reproduce the same behavior on our side and forward your report to our devs/PMs to properly confirm if this is a known problem that we are already working on or an unknown/unexpected issue.

Hi Petter,

Thanks for the response. I figured it had something to do with Big Sur, but didn't know if it was on your radar or not. A video of the behavior on my system is linked here. Let me know if this doesn't come through.


Hi @Critter Critter from the Jira Native team!

Big Sur is in Beta and from past experiences some of these bugs are from Apple so we do wait till we get a stabler version of Big Sure before going in and fixing bugs.

We've already had situations were we spent a week trying to fix a problem that gets solved by the next update. So we are watching the trends and once we identified something as critical we will fix it.

I have the same issue on my mac (which I also updated on Big Sur). I click on the "Log In" button then "Continue", and nothing happens.

Can the problem be related to a "too fast click" on a popup asking for some permissions? 


I have the same issue too on Big Sur

If you are still experiencing stuck login after upgrading to the latest BigSur version - resetting SMC will help.

How to manage many similar workflows?

I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
