[Pardon the duplicate with my previously posted question; I was attempting to submit a Support ticket, and clicked the "Display this question in Answers" setting.]
I recently downloaded and installed JIRA 5.1.3.
When I attempt to use UPM on the Plugins Page, the error banner reads: Atlassian Marketplace server is not reachable
With the help of a network admin at my company we have narrowed the issue down to a proxy problem.
We updated the Java options (in the JIRA properties dialog) to include the following properties:
- -Dhttp.proxyUser=hanford jira1
- -Dhttp.proxyPassword= ourpassword
- -Dhttps.proxyUser=hanford jira1
- -Dhttps.proxyPassword= ourpassword
The network admin now confirms that the page request is reaching the proxy, but not the credentials. Our proxy requires integrated authentication, so it is asking for credentials, but the application is not supplying them.
I tried adding the credentials to the conf/server.xml file but must have done so incorrectly because that broke it altogether (led to a 502 Proxy Error that prevented the whole page from loading). I updated the Connector element with the following attributes:
UPDATE: Here is the list of JIRA documentation pages that I have consulted:
Also, I have submitted a support ticket, but unfortunately the support personnel couldn't solve the problem ("not in their scope"), and referred me back here.
I installed what was (I assumed) the latest version of JIRA as of a few weeks ago (5.1.3), and it came packaged with UPM 2.1.5. I'm shocked to learn that JIRA was released with an internal component is so far behind the latest stable release!
Nevertheless, I'll go ahead and manually update it, as you suggest. I'm still not sure I have the java options (or the conf/server.xml file) configured correctly (the docs are so unclear and inconsistent in this matter), but your recommendation seems prudent. Thanks.
Well, I have updated to the latest version (2.7.3) but unfortunately the problem is unresolved. I'm afraid the issue lies with my jira configuration -- I am still not sure I have the java options (or the conf/server.xml file) configured correctly -- the docs are so unclear and inconsistent in this matter!Thanks anyway!
Kevin - did you try NTLM configuration? From https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Configuring+Web+Proxy+Support+for+Confluence, it's the ISA piece:
Looking around, I'm not seeing whether JIRA can handle that or not. We (Atlassian) need to update the guide for JIRA for how to configure an outbound proxy, and whether NTLM integrated authentication is supported or not. I'll look into that.
Are you using integrated authentication, and if so, does that syntax work?
