when using SSL LDAP connection i get the following error:

Root exception is javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: java.security.cert.CertificateException: No subject alternative DNS name matching ldapeu found

In our other java based systems using ldap SSL everything is fine, because we have bought an official certificate from a trust center which is in JDKs keystore and therefore java is able to verify the key/trust chain. we have done this to get around the import the self signed certificates in the java keystore ... so what is the problem with jira ? we have deployed jira as a web app in tomcat.

Hi Gunther, 

The HandShakeException is a common issue where either your LDAP does not have the certificate in Application's Java truststore or via versa. I would suggest that you go though this documentation's resolution and see if that helped you.
