Active Directory

I have followed the documentation on adding AD to JIRA, but I can't seem to make the connection even though the certificate was created.


Are there any tricks?

No tricks, other than follow the docs.  But, what errors are you getting?  Check the log files for more information on what is wrong.

I'll get the information.

 The last sentence in there gives the reason - your certificates are not set up correctly.  It's either a duff certificate, or, more likely, the certificate authority is not installed right.

This happens a lot when people start with certificates.  I find the Atlassian docs on it to be quite good, at least for Java based applications.  Run through to get started on a fix.
