The security token is missing for 'anonymous'


I'm trying to connect to JIRA via bash script for starting Re-Index, but JIRA answered that:


2013-08-19 04:36:31,443 http-bio-8080-exec-19 INFO anonymous 276x8136x1 -, /secure/admin/IndexAdmin.jspa [jira.web.action.XsrfErrorAction] The security token is missing for 'anonymous'. User-Agent : 'curl/7.15.5 (x86_64-redhat-linux-gnu) libcurl/7.15.5 OpenSSL/0.9.8b zlib/1.2.3 libidn/0.6.5'


What it means?

I means that someone is trying to connecto to JIRA without proper authentication using cURL and failed. Does not mean much.

For this script i'm using jira user with jira-administrators permissions.

Hi Denys,

I am also trying to figure a way to re-index from a bash script. Did you get lucky by any means.. I am also getting the same exact error you are having..

"The security token is missing for 'admin'"
