Difficulty following the UI Configuring JIRA Options.

Receiving the following error in the UI

"Your session has expired. You may need to re-submit the form or reload the page."


Manual manipulation of the database can be dangerous. Please make sure you have a backup of your database before you attempt these changes.


You can retrieve the base URL from the propertystring table:

select propertyvalue from propertyentry PE
join propertystring PS on
where PE.property_key = 'jira.baseurl';

In order to update the Base URL, run the following update in your JIRA database replacing the URL and restart JIRA.


For PostgresSQL:

update propertystring
set propertyvalue = ''
from propertyentry PE
and PE.property_key = 'jira.baseurl';

For MySQL:

update propertystring, propertyentry 
set propertystring.propertyvalue = '' 
where propertystring.ID = propertyentry.ID 
and propertyentry.PROPERTY_KEY = 'jira.baseurl'
