Error when creating a new/first ServiceDesk project



When trying to create a new ServiceDesk project (type: Customer Service) I get an error message reading "Hmm... we couldn't create your project due to an unknown error. Try refreshing the page to start again.".

It tried it multiple times - always with the same result.

When looking into the catalina.out file, I find this exception:

2017-08-25 09:22:25,193 http-nio-8080-exec-1 ERROR s.listing 562x3247x1 pm89rv, /rest/project-templates/1.0/templates [c.a.jira.project.ProjectCreateRegistrarImpl] The handler with id com.atlassian.jira.project-templates-plugin:apply-project-template-handler threw an exception while handling a notification about a project being created
com.querydsl.core.QueryException: Caught MySQLIntegrityConstraintViolationException for delete from `AO_54307E_GROUP` where `AO_54307E_GROUP`.`VIEWPORT_ID` = ?
at com.querydsl.sql.DefaultSQLExceptionTranslator.translate(
at com.querydsl.sql.Configuration.translate(
at com.querydsl.sql.dml.SQLDeleteClause.execute(

Background infos:

- we use a self hosted Jira 7.4.3
- we used ServiceDesk before hadn't renewed our license in some time. So this is a "reboot" but it might be, that some old data is still lingering around the datatbase

Any ideas?

Thanks a lot,

Hi Sven,


Can you check what it's displayed in the Versions & Licenses page for JIRA SD?

You will be able to see there if a license is active at the moment (even if it's a trial one).

Hi Daniel,


We currently have JIRA for 25 and service desk for 3 users. Both licenses are active.

Once I changed the name of the project, I get a different error message (see screenshot).

Hi Sven,

did you find a solution for this problem yet?

Nope - not really. I ended up installing the entire setup from scratch :(
