"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!!

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