We started receiving this message today.  Did you figure-out a solution to the root cause?

I was able to overcome this issue today by switching to the new issue view; however, our users prefer the old issue view so I don't think they are going to like this answer.

How in gods name is this considered "Solved"?

Facing same issue since we updated jira to 8.5.3. Any resolution appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Why is this marked accepted? How did you resolve this issue? 

I was able to resolve this issue by removing extra fields out of the project. 


We had a single project imapcting the users of our instance with this issue, when reviewing the config i found that the project admin had added a large number of fields to the scheme resulting in this error. After removing unneeded fields from the project this issue went away.

Please define "large number of fields." 

I have only one user (that I know of) complaining about this error out of about 60 users, so I'm inclined to think it is their browser, or the fact that they need to toggle on and off VPN to access other services. 

We have a large service desk project that requires many custom fields, issue types, and request forms. It would be unacceptable to need to limit those.

We have about 15 of our users experiencing this issue.  It mostly happens when we are resolving an issue.  Retrying does work, but it's getting annoying.

We have cleared cache on all our browsers, but it hasn't resolved the issue.

Why is this happening?

I also encounter this problem, but only when I change the status of a task whilst I am on the dashboard. It happens about 1 in 4 times. The error popup would appear with the question to retry. Retrying mostly works. So for me, it's only annoying. But strange none-the-less.

We have the same issue in 8.8.1

Is there a solution/fix for  this?

So I encountered this issue today when trying to clear the default value for Resolution field. The fix I have found for this is to go to the WEB-INF/classes directory and modify the value below from true to false in the jpm.xml file . You will have to restart jira for change to take effect.xsrf.jpg

Wow, this is the first fix I've seen posted in close to a year.  Thanks!  I'll have to try this out.  What version of JIRA are you running Lou?   

I am running 8.3.4. They mentioned changing the jira-config file but I don't even have that so it must be for older versions.

Not to be a party pooper but essentially you are cutting the tendons on the security provisions in the product to prevent it from throwing the error here. Cross site script detection is a necessity in today's world. Can we get a fix for this rather than just killing safety measures to prevent warning dialogs?

I am now hitting this "feature" in the Backup JIRA function. It starts the baclup and seems to finish it too, however, the GUI barfs and throws this XSRF token missing error, no matter if I'm at Edge or Firefox.
(JIRA 8.5.3)

Great work, Atlassian. I am now even more eager to be forced to pay DOUBLE for DataCenter license. You guys "rock" ..........

facing the same issue. 

May i know what's your solution for this issue ?

I've had this issue reported by one of our Jira users (out of about 80 total).   It seemed to occur when we upgraded to v8.4.2 in late October 2019.   Since it has only been once user its hasn't been a super urgent problem but I still want to get to the bottom of this problem. 

There's an option in every user's profile to 'Clear All Tokens'.

Have you tried this?

Tried this solution, doesn't work !

Like # people like this

Hello, same problem for me, after upgrade from Jira 7.9.13 to Jira 8.5.4

Still no solution ?

I've found this issue :

But no workaround for now...

any news?

I started receiving this error today and I am the sole admin. It renders me unable to do any system updates/configuration changes to try to fix the issue. I tried upgrading to the latest version and it did not fix the issue. Switching to Firefox from Chrome seems to fix the issue. Clearing all the tokens only works until I have to log back in. I am unable to log in unless I check the token to remember my login. I am not in the Cloud, I am in a local install. I don't see a way to switch to a "new issue view". 


The error note "Please refer to this page for details on disabling form token checking." brings me to a broken link. 

Having the same problem. Retrying the action yields success, but having to deal with this dialogue frequently is unacceptable.


How is this being marked as "Solved"/"Accepted" when no real solution has been defined? Did someone need to get their ticket-queue down?


After upgrade from Jira 8.2.2 to Jira 8.5.5, we have the same problem.

Still no real solution ?


Same for me! Only getting this error in a specific project.

Other projects dont have this problem. Deleting all unnecessary custom fields does not resolve it!!

Please provide a fix / solution for this.

Just had this error tonight - I'm one of our site admins

Trying to do a Bulk Edit on a Project to populate the Component field - and bam this error occurred

Frustrating to see it's an ongoing issue reported by multiple people with no solution provided

Same problem here only for one of our users, he cannot modify the issue field on multiple projects.
I recognize the Atlassian laziness when they want to "solve" the problem quickly without doing anything , nice one guys ! 

I am having the same problem as well. Despite using different browsers, incognito mode etc.   I encounter the same issues.  I have to keep trying multiple times  and 1 of 5 or 6  times it works temporarily and it went bad again. Is there a solution to this? First report is almost a year ago.

My fix.

1. Login as admin.

2. Click on top/right cogwheel and select System. Login again.

3. now you can use the Project menu.

Something is buggy !!
