One 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
- under JIRA's users, user's log in count increments by one
- after this point, user is not taken to anythere. The browser is not freezed, but it is waiting for the JIRA server.
We also tried with 'os_destination' set to an issue, and issue navigator URLs instead of the dashboard. Results are the same.
We tried with separate browsers, from separate locations, and by clearing browser data. But none of these worked for this user. But when I tried to log in with my username and password on this user's workstation, login succeeded.
Only one user is currently having this problem. None of the other users reported a similar problem.
Has anyone encountered with similar incidents?
Try to access this URL after the user is authenticated:
<JIRA Server Base URL>/secure/QuickSearch.jspa?searchString=%22+%22
That will clear of the issue navigator history. There is a possibility that the issue is due to complicated search string that cause JIRA to load a long time to return. If that is the case, the above URL should help.
Hope it helps.
This might sound a bit obvious... but have you double-checked the access rights for the user in question? After all, it's a problem that only affects one user and you have already proven that it is not browser-related.
I experienced a similar problem myself just a week or two ago on a plugin-creator's OnDemand instance. I knew that I was logged in but nothing was happening. I would be looking at the Sustem Dashboard but nothing would happen when I clicked on any link. I would input (say) the direct link to an Issue and all that would display was the System Dashboard. Not quite "browser seems to be waiting forever" but it seemed to me that I was waiting forever.
What had happened was that my access rights had been nobbled. Once that was realized, things were fixed in a matter of moments.
