We’re running an Octopus Server behind a corporate firewall. We have Jira Cloud and I’m trying to get the final piece of this working. I’ve got the Release Notes set up and that’s working fine. However I can’t seem to get the Jira base url with the Connect App Password working. Here’s the error I get when I click the Test (or try to deploy when this is enabled):
An error occurred while sending the request. Unable to connect to the remote server No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it 188.8.131.52:443
I’m guessing that’s in the IP range of Jira cloud’s hosting?? I’ve tried a few things around the proxy without luck:
- Using the default proxy (proxy pac file in this case).
- Specifying custom proxy and pointing it to one of our proxy servers (with and without auth)
- Setting the Jira base url to our Kong api receiver that points to the Jira cloud api. (this is how we usually hit the api internally as it’s got all the proxy baked in)
It’s weird that the Work Items are getting retrieved just fine. So that’s making me think that it isn’t necesarrily the proxy (as some traffic at least is getting through). Just whatever redirect is occuring to that IP is getting blocked.
