Problem creating an Application Link from JIRA to a HTTPS Bitbucket Server (or vice-versa)
Trying to create an
Application Link from JIRA to Bitbucket Server can result in the following
The host is unknown. Verify that the URL is correct.
And when attempting to create the same
Application Link from Bitbucket Server to JIRA the below error may occur:
The Remote application is not able to connect to 'Repository Manager'(Bitbucket Server) by using the URL 'https://<HOST_NAME>.<DOMAIN>:8443'.
This happens because JIRA doesn't have the Bitbucket Server Certificate on its Trusted Certs (Cacerts file).
To successfully connect
Bitbucket Server using the
Application Links it is needed to import the Bitbucket Server Certificate into the JIRA Server Cacerts file.
Export the Bitbucket Server Certificate:
$JAVA_HOME/bin/keytool -export -alias tomcat -file file.cer
Import the Bitbucket Server's Certificate into JIRA Server Cacerts file:
$JAVA_HOME/bin/keytool -import -alias tomcat -file file.cer
JAVA_OPTSvariable with the path to Cacerts file:
export JAVA_OPTS=-Djavax.net.ssl.trustStore="$JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/security/cacerts" -Djavax.net.ssl.trustStorePassword="changeit"
If the JIRA instance is also configured to use HTTPS the same procedure has to be repeated on the Bitbucket Server (export JIRA Certificate, Import JIRA Certificate into Bitbucket Server Cacerts and configure the JAVA_OPTS variable on the Bitbucket Server).
