what doest this authorization waring indicates and why we get it


We have created a link between stash and confluence, an dusing Stash include macro.

It works perfectly fine for some users, however when one of the team member tries to authorize the link he gets below message :

'You are currently being redirected to a page and we can not automatically confirm that its url is pointing to a safe resource. This could be caused by accessing this application with a different url than the base url configured by the administrator.

If you trust the url, you can continue by manually navigating to it.'

different url than the base url configured 

Have you checked this?

Maybe your base url is configured as "ourstash.company.com" and the user uses some old url like "oldstash.company.com", which is still working but not totally valid.

This message normally comes up if the URL in the redirect link does not have the same base URL as your configured application link from Stash back to Confluence. In this specific case it is definitely not a security issue.

Could you please make sure that the redirect link the user gets on this warning screen (which should be something like http://yourdomain/confluence/display/SPACENAME/PAGENAME) starts with the same base URL as the Confluence application link configured in Stash (e.g., http://yourdomain/confluence)? This would greatly help to resolve this issue.

As Adrian pointed out, it might be that the user you mentioned is accessing Confluence with an URL that is not the configured Confluence base URL, which then leads to this issue.

Hope this helps.
