@mwwang (Sorry I forgot to send this message yesterday)

There is the following doc in Atlassian Website, please check it and try their suggestions:

Let us know if you have any questions.




Thanks a lot, I added a LDAP instead of jira user directory and placed the LDAP at the top, now we can login with the LDAP account.

@mwwang I am very happy to learn that it worked! LDAP is better as a long term option.

Make sure to have a local admin in the Jira internal Directory just in case.

Our LDAP had issues once, no one was able to access Jira.

All the best,

Yes, I have already keep one admin account out of the LDAP.

Do you mean Application Links?Are you looking to add Confluence from inside Jira so that you can make both Applications talk to each other?

1.pngI want to connect the confluence and jira, then use the same user management.

Hi @mwwang ,

Login to confluence.

Settings --> User Management --> User Directories --> Add Directory --> Atlassian Jira 

Name : Choose any specified Name

Server URL : (Replace with your IP and Port)

Application Name : Jira Username

Password : Jira Password

Connection Timeout : choose default is enough (5000)

Max Connections : Confluence users highest active number count in a day

Proxy Host :  any proxy server used , IP address

Proxy Port : Same as above 

Proxy Server username and Password


Jira Server Permissions :

Choose "Read-only" for better safety.

Advanced Settings:

Don't Enable Nested groups

Keep all settings as default

Sync : 

if you create jira accounts frequent, Choose least time.

TEST and Save  


I also do it as you said, but the Application Name and Password are not the JIRA user name and password, it should be the jira user server as I said in the topic.

I connect the jira user server with the error:

com.atlassian.crowd.exception.ApplicationPermissionException: Forbidden (403) Encountered a "403 - Forbidden" error while loading this page. client.forbidden.exception Go to Jira home


So I'm not sure if my configurition is right or I'm missing some configuration
