Cannot add domain. CNAME check fails

I've made sure to add all the DNS records to our cloudflare.

TXT records are verified fine, but CNAME records still fail. The thing is, the CNAME checks I make from other tools do not fail.

When I check the record from here

or do a `dig atlassian-<id>.domainkey.<ourdomain> CNAME`

I receive proper



But Atlassian cant seem to verify it? Please advise

Following the advise on another thread ( I added the following to my DNS registrar:


CNAME s1._domainkey.<ourdomain>

CNAME s2._domainkey.<ourdomain>


After that, check DNS records button started to fail for all records including TXT ones as well. But I was getting a pass from that showed everything was alright.

Anyways, after 5 hours, my domain is active right now. I don't know what changed. I had atlassian continuously re-check, and just found it is done after I gave up :) Marking this as resolved.
