The following appears in the atlassian-fisheye.log:

2014-05-29 14:06:42,112 WARN   [CommitNotifier1 ] com.atlassian.fecru.plugin.comithook.internal.DefaultCommitHookManager DefaultCommitHookManager-collateErrors - Error while processing a commit directive handled by plugin com.atlassian.fecru.plugin.commithook.fecru-jiracommithook-plugin:jiracommithook for changeset 67fb441d 32cd6df04bf432e4ef5b7b0cdbf445619 in repository <repository_name>:
FishEye was unable to comment on the issue http://localhost:8080/browse/AAA-1 due do the following unexpected error: (401)Unauthorized


The Application Link between JIRA and Fisheye is configured as OAuth, and there is no token created in Fisheye/JIRA for the commiting user.


The token needs to be created. You can do it by the following instructions:

  1. Create a test review in Fisheye.
  2. Log in with the commiting user.
  3. Open the review and click in "Edit Details".
  4. Fill the field "Linked Issue" with the key of some JIRA issue and click in "Link". You'll be prompted to authenticate.
  5. Do this for every commiting user (no need to create a new review, only link the review to any JIRA issue).
