[JIRA] The User 'XXX' has PASSED authentication, but browser does not proceed to the Dashboard

All of our JIRA users has encountered that once authenticated to JIRA, user cannot proceed to the dashboard or Issue Navigator. Once logged in, the browser seems to be waiting forever!

Once this user enters username and password to JIRA, we observed that authentication passed. 

  • Atlassian-jira-security.log indicates that user has 'PASSED' authentication
  • In JIRA's user sessions, a session has been created for the user with only one HTTP request
  • After this point, user is not taken to anythere. The browser is not freezed, but it is waiting for the JIRA server.

Please find below security log for the same.

Have you recently updated any plugins?  Is this happening for all users?  Do you have enough RAM and are your JVM Heap settings enough to handle your instance?

Is that snippet above from the security log?  What does the atlassian-JIRA log say?

Not promising to have any answers after you provide that information, but I bet it will help someone that may!
