Application link between Confluence and Jira not working

Antoine Berry Community Leader Dec 16, 2019

I cannot get application link between Jira and Confluence to work since I upgraded to HTTPS (port 8443). I am using a keystore referenced in the server.xml file. I added Confluence's certificate in the Jira keystore (and vice versa).

Here is the error message from Jira : 


With the associate log error : 

Unable to perform a request to: PKIX path building failed: unable to find valid certification path to requested target

And the error message in Confluence : 


It looks like a certificate error, maybe have I missed a step ?

Hi @Antoine Berry , 


there is actually a KB for this exact error :

Basically, you need to import your SSL certificates in your JVM trust store, you can follow this documentation to do this :


Let me know if this helps,

Thanks Alexis, that worked! I definitely checked that KB but was unsure what to do since I was already using a keystore. :)

I have another question on how to run on port 443 if you want to check.
