Hi all - every time I attempt to do JIRA admin tasks (add users, create projects - anything at all), I will have to log in with my admin password many, many times. I will generally get one click, maybe two, and for any activity using a popup, I have about only a 25% success rate using these as it keeps requesting an admin login and dropping the previous information. If anyone has any idea, please let me know.
I've seen this happen when I had a machine with time drift, on a VM machine this will happen if you don't have Guest Addons/VMware tools installed. After I installed VM tools this sympton vanished.
For security reasons, is expected that everytime you attempt to do an administration task, the login screen will appear again. This method is to avoid that someone can perform administrations tasks if you forget you jira logged in.
You'll be able to remove Secure Administrator Sessions by disabling this feature by specifying the following line in your jira-config.properties file:
jira.websudo.is.disabled = true
* You will need to restart your JIRA server for this setting to take effect.

This is something that is happening so often, I can't even update the plug-ins. Every time the list of add ons require updates refreshes (or more accurately, tries to refresh), I am thrown into a admin login screen. I am completely unable to update the add-ons or even view the list any more.
Are you running any external scripts with your credentials? That happens a lot at my company. Someone will write a REST application that does some crazy thing and use their own credentials. Then when they change their password the script keeps pounding at the server using the old password forcing their account to be locked regularly.
