"Oops, you've found a dead link"

Parts of my JIRA instance are encountering dead links. Example below:


I recently had to change the port number on the JIRA instance from 8080 to 8081, and then these errors started happening. This JIRA instance hooks up with a stash server too, and users from the JIRA directory now cannot log into stash.

Anyone have an idea with what's going on? I've already updated my baseurl.

I just had to clear out some cache files by doing the following:

  1. Shutdown JIRA;
  2. Delete the content of the following directories:
    • <<JIRA_HOME>>/plugins/.osgi-plugins
    • <<JIRA_HOME>>/plugins/.bundled-plugins
    • <<JIRA_INSTALL>>/work
  3. Start JIRA;
  4. Reindex JIRA;

This worked for me. Thank you!!

Hi @Zak Taccardi2, can you help me how to delete the content using Mac? Thank you.

Perhaps you must refresh the connection between JIRA and Stash (delete connection, create connection). The old connection is looking at the old port.
