Hi @Muhammad Ramzan

Thanks for reaching out on the community with your question. 

This error will occur when JSD is not able to validate the token which it received when completing the OAuth flow. You may also see an error with more details which may help more before this which should be along the lines of: 

Unable to connect to the server at ... due to the following exception:

However, the error that you are seeing suggests that JSD was unable to connect to the Google server with the token which was received from Google as this error occurs when the connection is validated. JSD tries to establish a connection and if you turn on debug for the package `` you should see the following log line when successful (this page should help turn on debug): 

Connection to Mail Server established successfully 

Here are some questions that may help narrow down the issue you are having:

  • What scopes have you requested when you configured the OAuth connection in the Jira plugin? For Google you need the scope
  • Have you registered the redirect url in your Google configuration?
  • Were you able to complete the OAuth flow when setting up the connection?
  • Are you able to see the failed connection attempts in your Google account?
  • Are you able to setup OAuth2 in Jira for the email account to verify if this is an issue with Google the setup or JSD? 

Your OAuth configuration should look something like this (I was able to test this locally)

Jira Service Desk

Your issue may not be the same one I had, but it exhibited similar symptoms.

I solved this by uninstalling some unsupported plugins - Jira Core, Software and Service Desk back end all appeared to be functioning normally - but the customer facing side of the Service Desk was throwing this error in the browser console when loading the login page:

Uncaught ReferenceError: JIRA is not defined
at HTMLDocument.<anonymous> (batch.js?locale=en-US:365)
at c (batch.js?locale=en-US:49)
at Object.fireWith [as resolveWith] (batch.js?locale=en-US:49)
at ready (batch.js?locale=en-US:49)

After disabling the unsupported plugins the Service Desk loaded correctly for customers, and the Google Mail link authorized correctly and began processing emails correctly.

Thanks @Craig Shannon @ for the right suggestions,  issue was with scope. Although with the scope i provided auth was working but in jsd it was not


But after updating the right scope worked like a champ. Thank you

Like Craig Shannon likes this

@Matt Deir  many thanks for sharing your experience,  my issue was with scope
