I am experiencing the same exact issue in the same exact environment (6.1.7).  Were you able to find a workaround?

Zephyr support was able to help with this... Resolution is as follows:


This is a known bug for customers using Jira Agile versions below 6.3.12 and trying to enable zephyr for jira plugin 2.5.1. However, upgrading your Jira Agile version to 6.3.12 or higher will fix this issue. Kindly try to upgrade your Jira Agile version and enable the plugin again 

That was the issue. Thanks for the help!
