Invalid filter ID in user preferences:

On JIRA 7.1.0, Dashboard, the "Projects" tab will, from time to time, take a very long time opening, and in the logs, I get the following:

"/rest/api/1.0/menus/find_link [] Invalid filter ID in user preferences: "

That is the entire line, i.e. the filter ID seems to be blank (or null).

Could the two things be related, and what may I do to remedy it?

Best regards,

Sune Mølgaard

Maybe your issue is answered by and fixed in 7.2.x


That is quite possible.

As for the long loading times, we seem to have determined that this is caused by some weirdness in a load balancer, functioning as proxy, contacting Apache HTTPD in front of 3 Atlassian products on the server, which seems to have been alleviated by pointing it directly to the application ports.
