Problem

After performing upgrade of JIRA & Confluence, the existing applink is not working anymore even tho it has been recreated.

The following appears in the atlassian-jira.log

2015-08-17 22:41:34,749 http-bio-8080-exec-21 ERROR riada3.comhem 1361x213x1 1igslnj 10.11.27.32,10.11.76.29 /rest/viewIssue/1/remoteIssueLink/render/17254 [viewissue.issuelink.rest.RemoteIssueLinkResource] Error occurred while generating final HTML for remote issue link: java.lang.RuntimeException: java.io.IOException: Failed to load Confluence Page from remote server Caused by: java.io.IOException: Failed to load Confluence Page from remote server Caused by: com.atlassian.sal.api.net.ResponseException: javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: Received fatal alert: handshake_failure Caused by: javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: Received fatal alert: handshake_failure

Diagnosis

Diagnostic Steps

  • From the logs, it seems that Applinks fails to establish a trust on the SSL
  • If and only if, using JAVA 7 on previous installation and have updated to JAVA 8, proceed with below solution

Cause

Unlimited strength cryptography and the policy.jar files used in JAVA7 wasn't working with the JAVA8 shipped with the new Confluence

Resolution

Download new policy.jar files from Oracle that supported unlimited strength cryptography and copy those over to CONF_INSTALL/jre/lib/security
