The errors 1 and 2 above are logged due to either of the causes below, respectively:
The Zephyr license has expired and the plugin is enabled.
- The Zephyr license user limit is incompatible with the JIRA license user limit.
Any of the options below can be followed to address this error:
Disable the plugin in case it is not being used anymore.
- Request a new evaluation license at https://my.atlassian.com/ if the plugin is still being evaluated.
- Purchase a commercial license or upgrade to a license in the same user-tier as the JIRA license at the Atlassian Marketplace page for the plugin (direct link: Zephyr for JIRA).
For more information about how to update a plugin license, please refer to the Update license for a 3rd party app in Jira server document.
