Not able to create issue via this Service Desk.

A user who has created similair issues in the past is suddenly unable to create issue via Service Desk. The permission helper confirms that the user has the required permissions. The following error messages are displayed in the catalina.out:

Is there any ideas about what I need to look for?

I assume you've verified that the user's email address still shows up when you look at his profile in JIRA?

You could try sending a test email from JIRA to that user. In Admin->System->Send Email.

The user email address is not set up, however this should not effect his ability to create an issue, rather the user will not be notified by email. Am I right on this? I am assuming so since this particular user had created an issue a few days back with Service Desk and no settings have been changed.

That is strange.

However, I always thought email address was a required field for a customer / user of JIRA Service Desk. It seems to be for me. See below.

 Not sure how you have a user without an email address. Are you using an external user directory?

Hi Chris, yes I am using an external user directory. I have now added an email address to the particular user, and synchronised the directory, however the user is still unable to create an issue via Service Desk.

 

The following logs are given for the particular user at about the time he was trying to set the issue, however I do not think this has any link to the problem.

Using getResponseBodyAsStream instead is recommended.

 

Thanks in advance for your help.
