Lost Access to User Management

I used to be able to add users using my credentials. It seems that since JIRA6.2 update, I lost the rights... Now I see a button "Leave JIRA to go to User Management" on user management menu entry. Upon clicking on the button, I get redirected to a login page that asks for my credentials, after submiting the information I get a page with error code 403 forbidden.
