The atlassian-jira.log file is not updated with the latest entries. 

From the Administration >> System >> System Info page, the Location of atlassian-jira.log shows as Could not find atlassian.jira.log.


There is insufficient file system permission for the user that runs JIRA to write on the file. 


Ensure the right file system permission is given to the user that runs JIRA.
