1.  The best way for Acunetix to talk to Jira is over the Jira REST interface. 

2.  Whatever port your Jira is running on

3.  You have a couple of options

Start at  (I find the examples a better starting point than the technical docs)

thank you nic  for your reply, but the link is not available. i got 404 error.

Bother, sorry, I forgot.  This software annoyingly pads urls rendering them invalid.

Either copy the link exactly as it appears, or open the link again, get the 404, and then go into the url field and remove everything from /%C2 to then end of it and hit enter.

thanks again nic, the link works now

Hi Team,

I am getting the following error when trying to integrate with jira

"Invalid login credentials, account locked out or CAPTCHA required."


Could you please help to resolve this error?

Thanks in advance


That means roughly what it says.

The account you are using for this integration has tried to login and failed too many times, so it is looking like a security risk.

Either try to log in as that user and pass the tests, or login as an admin and go to user management and set their attempts back to zero.

You will need to ensure your remote settings are correct of course - if your application or script is getting it wrong, it's just going to lock you out again.

Hi Nic,

Thanks you for reply :)

I am able to access JIRA with login credentials that i used in Acunetix, account does not seem to have login issue when manually logging in.

I am running the JIRA  on my localhost for testing purpose.

Still i am getting the same error, also i am trying with admin credentials.

I have enabled captcha in JIRA

Is there anything in configuration i am missing?



This sounds like your Acunetix account details are valid, but when you present them to Jira, they are not.  Does the Acunetix account exist in Jira?
