Jira Server will not authorize any user.

So, I have a server install of Bitbucket, Jira, Confluence and Crowd.

All of these apps use external directories for user management with my crowd install.  Now, a few days ago I had the primary domain expire and somebody snatched it up.  Boooo but so I thought I would just update all the base url's and crowd url's and I will be up an running...

 

Well, Jira is the only application I cannot password authenticate with.  I know it can talk to Crowd because I bumped the logs up and can see the external sync.  I have also created new users in crowd with jira privileges and have seen them sync but password authentication still fails.

 

I know it fails because I also bumped the logs for security and with every user I try to login with I see the following.

Does anybody have any ideas?  I have tried so many things now but cannot figure this one out.

You should be able to retrieve the Jira local user directory administrator account on server.  This will allow you to login and troubleshoot your crowd user directory settings.  You can find out more here: https://confluence.atlassian.com/jira/retrieving-the-jira-administrator-192836.html

I have the same issue using the local Jira user directory.  When I stood up the instance I added crowd as an external and left the internal active.

When all of this happened all the sudden my admin user can't login.  Luckily I have email setup so I run through the password reset, click the email, change my password and I get AUTHENTICATED_FAILED.

I have no way to get to the UI now so I have to muck around in my database to try and configure stuff.  I will take a look at the url you submitted and see if this helps.

Ok, I ran the queries to verify the user I am trying to login jira-admin privileges.  I ran through the email reset and no dice, same problem AUTHENTICATED_FAILED.

I went through the steps to reset the password in the db to 'sphere' AUTHENTICATED_FAILED.
