With JIRA behind a proxy, users are not able to use the Tools menu in the Issue Navigator.


To ensure you're seeing this issue, please attempt to connect to JIRA while bypassing your web proxy. Generally, this is done by browsing to JIRA from the JIRA machine itself, or from a machine in its LAN subnet.


This is caused by the proxy failing to reroute data from the JIRA browser GUI and the JIRA server.


If you're using a proxy solely for port redirection, consider using your server operating system's firewall or packet filter to route the packets to the correct port instead.
