After testing the connectivity between Bitbucket Server and JIRA User Management, the connection fails in the UI and the following appears in the atlassian-bitbucket.log:

In order to be able to connect Bitbucket Server to JIRA User Management, you need to prepare JIRA and configure a specific user/password pair on it so that Bitbucket Server can get connected for User Management purposes. In this case, the password being sent on the connection request from Bitbucket Server to JIRA does not match what JIRA is expecting which causes the exception above to be thrown in Bitbucket Server logs.

This can also caused by the following bug (second stack trace):  BSERV-4676 - Getting issue details... STATUS

Please refer to it in order to reproduce this use case.


  • Please review the step "1. Set up JIRA to allow connections from Bitbucket Server" described in the Delegate user management to Jira document. Check that the username and password pair you created for Bitbucket Server is correct.

Making sure you remove/re-add JIRA as User management to your Bitbucket Server instance will help you troubleshoot if the user/password is incorrect wither in JIRA or Bitbucket Server.
