Jira ondemand users unable to view confluence ondemand


We've been running Jira ondemand for a couple of months, and I just added confluence on demand as a trial. I can see the users from within Confluence, but when they register they see: "Access Denied: You have not been granted access to Confluence". I have added the relevant groups in "Global permissions" and enabled Jira and Confluence in "Application Access" for the users. I also tried adding new users without success

I have the impression that the accounts have not been set up correctly. Any help would be appreciated

many thanks

Hi Paul,

This error message normally is related to the user doesn’t have Application Access.

I would ask you to disable and enable the Application Access again.

It’s possible to access through: <OnDemand_URL>/admin/apps

Kind Regards,

HI Henrique,

I found a different solution. Users are automatically added to the group 'confluence-users' and 'jira-users', however to connect the accounts they must also be added to the group 'users'. This feels like a bug - or at least poorly implemented functionality to me.

but I have a workaround at least
