That doesn't seem to be an error message really, but it does tell us something. Either your Corporate/Ping SSO is not talking to Jira correctly - that is, it's not giving the login to Jira. Or it's giving details to Jira that Jira cannot match in its lists of users.

Rule out Jira first - check that the user exists, is in the login group and have a look at their failed/successful/last login data. Compare their profile with one that works.

Then I'm afraid you'll need to dig into the SSO side - what exactly are they entering as a user ID, what is it passing to Jira, what is it supposed to pass. Because other users work, it's very unlikely to be the a problem with the basics of the SSO, but something to do with the broken user's account.
