Why is my domain verification continuing to fail?

I have followed the instructions in the "add custom email" but still get an email indicating the domain cannot be verified.  I have the TXT domain records added in Cloudflare for atlassian-sending-domain-verification and v=spf1.  I also added the CNAME records.  What am I missing?  What can I do to understand why it is failing to verify?

Have you tried using an online service to check whether your TXT recored has really been applied?

Here is one you can test with:


Thanks for the response.  I just used this tool and it does show that the TXT records are what I have set with my DNS provider.  They do include the entries that Atlassian says I should have:
TXT    v=spf1 -all
TXT    atlassian-sending-domain-verification=73eba885-7d97-40e4-82fb-06d786b4b8a3


However, when I do the "See DNS records" from the Atlassian Admin for email settings it still shows all the records with a red X and indicates the record is missing from the domain provider.  I set these in the DNS provider last week so I don't think it is a timing issue.  Any other thoughts or suggestions?

Ok that's odd.

You can create an Atlassian support ticket for this. Perhaps they can check why the verification does not work on their end.

What's really odd is that late yesterday afternoon I got an email saying that "We can no longer verify one of your domains".  I checked the See DNS records again and it is now showing all of the entries with green check.  I'm not sure what changed or if doing the check made some difference.  Either way it seems to have completed the verify.  Thanks for your help.

I'm having the same issue myself. However I  cannot contact support because I'm on the free tier. Is there an alternative option by chance? Or is there a free chat I can reach them on?
