Bitbucket service integration with JIRA: Access denied

I've linked our Bitbucket Team Account with our local JIRA 5.2 and enabled Smart Commits. Now, when I commit something to Bitbucket I see the following requests from Bitbucket in the log files of our webserver. - - [13/Dec/2012:12:16:13 +0100] "POST /rest/bitbucket/1.0/repository/9/sync HTTP/1.1" 303 3101 "-" "" - - [13/Dec/2012:12:16:14 +0100] "GET /rest/bitbucket/1.0/repository/9 HTTP/1.1" 401 656 "-" ""

To the first request (POST) the server responds with a redirect (303) and to the second one (GET) the server responds with an error (401).

The complete response from the server to the second request is:

HTTP/1.1 401 Unauthorized

It looks like that some kind of authentication is required but is missing. What could be the problem?
