Domain verify with DNS

I have added the TXT record and waited a week several times and i am still not able to verify the domain name. Why is jira not seeing the DNS record?

@ken yoder - hi Ken! Where are you configuring DNS? Are you with a service like Cloudflare, GoDaddy, etc.?

If I* have personal experience with your service, I can tell you how I've configured my TXT records.

* or someone else on this forum

i am using bluehost for the domain hosting. im adding the "atlassian-domain-verification=***gibberish***" key to my @ TXT records.

Gotcha - Bluehost's DNS config is pretty straightforward (I've actually used them before!).

Have you tried removing the TXT record, then re-applying it?

Sanity check: Your host record should be "@" (no quotes) as you mentioned. And you can re-paste in the atlassian-domain-verification value as you did before.

yes i've added and removed it 3 times. waiting a week in between each time.

@ken yoder - bummer! A few hours max should be sufficient time to try again.

I would suggest the HTTPS method of verifying then - way easier if you're your domain server admin (or know one).

our site is hosted on wix and our webmaster tells me that there is no way to upload the verification html file for the HTTPS verification... DNS seems my only option. 

does atlassian have no support options for this type of issue?

Dave Liao Community Leader Jan 21, 2021

@ken yoder - if you're on Atlassian's free plan, free community-supported support (from volunteers like me!) are your primary option.

Can you screenshot your TXT record in Bluehost, so I can sanity check it? Feel free to crop judiciously or redact any entries you consider private.


i see... i appreciate your help, this thing is kickin my butt.

@ken yoder - instead of @ , try replacing that with the actual domain's name (it's a stretch), e.g.

Dave Liao Community Leader Jan 21, 2021

@ken yoder - also, as a sanity check, put in your domain here:

and confirm you see the TXT record present?

bluehost wouldnt let me use the domain name, it just threw an error. i tried it blank too, same error. the only way it would save is with the @. 

and the txt record is not showing up on dnschecker.

@ken yoder - that's a weird one! Reach out to Bluehost support to confirm if you've added the TXT record in the right place/format/etc.

If dnschecker doesn't see the entry, Atlassian wouldn't either.

got it... Thanks for your help.

Please write back if they're able to pinpoint what the issue is! I feel super invested now 😄

haha no doubt. it was my fault... (shame face) i was setting the txt record at bluehost's dns instead of wix's dns. bluehost hosts our domain names but they are routed to wix. i thought the txt records stayed with the domain but apparently they follow through to the endpoint's dns. 

we set the txt record at wix and it worked within an hour.

@ken yoder - fun trivia; some domain host providers won't even LET you set DNS records on domains if you're leveraging a different service (like Cloudflare) to handle your DNS records. Now I know Bluehost lets you. 😜

thats weird that it lets you add the record even though it does nothing right? seems weird to me. lol
