Webex App not working properly


I installed the Webex app on Jira cloud. I`m admin in Jira and in webex.
But everytime I want to start or schedule a webex from a Jira issue, I get the following message:
"You don't have a Webex Meetings host account on Contact your Webex Meetings administrator"

The Cisco support was not able to help me.
Does anyone of you know, what to do or has got similar experience with the webex app?

Hello @Rainer-Matthias Buchheim ,

I use neither the app nor Webex myself, but from the error message itself it looks like you have configured as the Webex site that you want users to use for Webex Personal Room meetings in Jira.

Now, I am not sure whether this is correct or you have to replace mycompany with your actual company name. However, what I suggest to do is the following:

  1. Go to the app settings and make sure the Webex site URL and credentials have been correctly configured
  2. If this does not help, contact the app vendor using the details in:




Hello Dario,

thx for your reply.
mycompany is only a placeholder for my company. The settings in Jira are correct.
I have been in contact with the cisco support. They weren't able to help me and sent me back to atlassian ;)

Hello @Rainer-Matthias Buchheim ,

Can you please summarize a bit what has been found/done by Webex support? Did they determine that the issue is on Jira side or anything else?

Also, can you reproduce the issue with your browser developer tools open and check what is returning the error message? 


Hello @Dario B ,

unfortunately, the cisco support didn`t do anything.
The last message I`ve got, was the following:

It appears that the 2 apps are not communicating properly and uninstalling our plugin didn't work. The Jira support team should be able to tell us if something is wrong with the integration itself.

But before I contact the Jira support, I wanted to ask here, if someone has/had got the same experience.

I opened the Dev-tools in the Browser and got some warnings:
batch.js?is-feature-enabled=true&jag=true&locale=en-US:12551 WARN: 'triggerPrivacyPolicySafeEvent' has been deprecated

Sometimes, when I click on an issue and then on the "Cisco Webex Meetings" Link, it takes some seconds, then the App Buttons were displayed for just a second and then the text mentioned above appears again.

Hello @Rainer-Matthias Buchheim ,

If you look at the network tab instead of the console, can you identify which resource/endpoint is returning the error message? 

Also, can you let me know date, time and timezone of when you are reproducing the issue in order to check the network tab, so I can see if I find anything in the logs? 

If nothing else helps then, as you already thought, the way to proceed is to open a support request with us in order to determine if the error is returned from our side or if there is any other issue.



Hi @Dario B ,

thx for the answer.

I again looked at the network tab. There are only 200's and a few 304's so no error there.

I tried it from 5:15 PM to 5:20 PM CET

Maybe you find something in the logs..would be good ;)

Hello @Rainer-Matthias Buchheim ,

I can see some lines related to the webex plugin in the logs but no errors in here as well:

2020-11-25 17:16:08.429 INFO com.atlassian.plugin.connect.plugin.auth.user.ConnectAddonLoginFilter.privacy-safe Setting user context header for request from app Cisco-Webex-Meetings - app account ID: Optional[5cc0e21b2f51be0e56a1b530]

2020-11-25 17:16:08.454 INFO {"eventName":"","resourceName":"UnrestrictedUserEmailResource","resourceMethodName":"getUserEmail","httpMethodName":"GET","httpResponseCode":200,"path":"/api/{v:2|3|latest}/user/email","pathPrefix":"","fullPath":"/api/{v:2|3|latest}/user/email","connectAddon":true,"connectAddonKey":"Cisco-Webex-Meetings","userAgent":"","clientType":"CONNECT_SERVER_TO_SERVER","executionTimeMillis":7,"data":{},"exceptionClassname":null}

2020-11-25 17:16:08.500 INFO getMyPermissions


Therefore, since no network errors or other kind of errors are seen in both, Jira logs and the browser developer tools, what seems to be happening is that  the remote end ( is not recognizing the account credentials sent by Jira and therefore returns the message:

"You don't have a Webex Meetings host account on Contact your Webex Meetings administrator"


Now, before going any further, can you kindly let me know the following:

  1. If the plugin was working fine before and it suddenly stopped working or if it is the first time you use it (if it worked fine before, when did it stop working?)
  2. If the issue is affecting all the users in the instance or if it works for some users
  3. If the issue is only happening with specific kind of projects (e.g. only with Next-Gen or only with Classic) or all of them
  4. Is there any way you or Webex support can check the data sent by Jira to in order to determine what is wrong? 



Hello @Dario B ,

thx for your answer and the log entries.
I`ll also forward them to webex support. Maybe, they can compare them with their logs.

To your questions:

  1. It was the first time, we installed the app. Haven't used it before.
  2. The issue is affecting all users of our instance
  3. It happens in all projects on all issue types
  4. I'll contact webex support again. Let's see, what comes



Thanks for your quick reply on this @Rainer-Matthias Buchheim .

Before going any further, just to double-check, can you confirm that the email address of the Jira user that is trying to start the Webex meeting has a corrispettive account on and is enabled for using personal rooms?

This is because on the app documentation I can read:

People with host accounts on that Webex site can use the app to start, schedule, and join Webex Personal Room meetings from Jira. Their Webex accounts must also be enabled for using Personal Rooms. 


If this does not help then please continue with Webex Support. Unluckily I don't have full access to your instance so there was a limited amount of things I could do. However, knowing what data is received by the remote end will help determining why the error message was returned. 

Once done, in case Webex Support will identify an issue with Jira (not likely, but it can always be the case), you can proceed opening a support request with us using:



Thanks @Dario B ,

yes, it's the same e-mail-address on both sides and I'm admin for webex, which includes Personal rooms.

Already posted the above things to webex support. Let's see, what they find.

You are very welcome @Rainer-Matthias Buchheim 

Have a nice weekend!  

@Rainer-Matthias Buchheimdid you ever find a solution to this? I'm running into the same problem, and not really getting anywhere with Webex support either.
