Are the On Demand servers down? "OnDemand authentication system failure" error message


I have been trying to log in to an On Demand version of JIRA, for the past 30 mins. But I keep receiving the following error message: "OnDemand authentication system failure."

Is this error apearing because the server is down, or is there another cause behind it?

I am the admin for our system, so in case there's something other than the servers causing this issue, I will need to fix it ASAP.

Any tips will be much appreciated.

You'll need to raise a support issue with Atlassian.
