Hello guys

I'm having trouble with my jira, this error is appearing and then it disappears.

Hi Andre,

We've struggled with this error at our organization in the past. There were a few things we did to resolve:

  1. Ask your friendly Oracle DBA to check where connections are coming from. We've seen cases where rogue processes were chewing up DB connections and not releasing them.
  2. Have the DBA also increase the open cursors. (point them at this thread if the need some more info)
  3. Check that the JDBC driver you're using is the correct version. If you're on Oracle 12c, the only stable driver that hasn't had issues reported to Atlassian is which you can obtain here from Oracle.

Hope this helps and good luck!

Daniel, thanks.

The driver was what was in use, I changed it to and solved the problem.
