Error! This resource requires WebSudo.


When I try to run a groovy script in JIRA Script Runner Console. I get the following error on the screen

"This resource requires WebSudo. "

and in logs it shows "Uncaught exception thrown by REST service"

Is it a bug or a known issue?

Note: One thing that I noticed is, if I reindex, it is started working. After some time same issue arised again.

JIRA Version - 6.0.8

Script Runner Version - 3.0.3

Kindly suggest.

Thank you.

This seems to happen when your Administration Session times out and JIRA would ask for you password again.


I have used the latest version of script runner in my JIRA, it seems that it is supporting versions above 6.1.

I have uninstalled and used the lower version which is compatible with my JIRA and it started working.

I faced this error too. Just logged out and re-logged in and it worked!!
Strange error!

not a strange error, but as the first answer decribed its an auth "issue"
