User cannot login after creating


I've tried local and ldap auth for one new user. In any cases this user is getting a message "Sorry, your username and password are incorrect - please try again.". But i absolutely confident that Username and Password are correct. Any other new users are able to login without any problem.

Does someone experienced the same issue?

Do these two things

1) In the Admin section of user directories in jira , test the user crendetials

2) Share the logs as well.

i've changed the password again. the problem still present.

log during login:

$ tail -f /data/jira_home/log/atlassian-jira-security.log

In the global permissions of JIRA, who can log on to jira, i guess people who are part of jira-users group can log-on to jira, is the user part of the jira-users group?

Sure, all new users automatically joining jira-users group. Also jira-users is in the JIRA Users Global Permissions.

i'm using jira for user mgmt.

This problem actual for local and ldap auth.
