Application Link with IIS and Integrated Authentication

I am setting up a JIRA+Confluence environment in my job and I found a problem linking JIRA to Confluence.

Both JIRA and Confluence are set up with IIS ARR and Windows Integrated Authentication.

When I try to setup the link in JIRA, I get a not authorized error "Unable to retrieve the application's certificate: Invalid response code of 401 returned from".

Does anybody faced the same scenario? What are the alternatives? Both not linking JIRA with Confluence or not using WIA are not an option.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Ernesto,

Are you using SSL? I could find another question which the problem was the certificate.

If the case, I recommend to test without SSL and recreate the app links using trusted applications.

If you are able to connect to each other application, then I recommend to check the SSL settings and check if the certificates are correctly placed on each truststore of each application server.

Nop, I'm not using SSL... the problem is that IIS requires the user to authenticate using integrated security but as the link between the application is done from tomcat, and it is running as Local System, it is rejected by IIS.
