How do I fix Jira Connector "Private Key does not match value in JIRA" error


This morning we started receiving the following error on all of our Jira connector workflows.

"Your workflow has been disabled due to the following error: Private Key does not match value in JIRA. Please verify that the Private Key in your JIRA Application Link matches the value in your Smartsheet for JIRA Host listing. To correct this issue, please log into Smartsheet for JIRA and edit the workflow to re-enable it."

I tried editing a workflow and also creating a new one, but still get the same error. I checked the Application Link configurations in both SmartSheet and Jira. The Consumer Key and the Public key match in both SmartSheet and Jira. As far as I can see we have not changed anything that would have caused this.

What can I do to correct this?

    We have also experience this for all our connectors this morning

    I opened a support ticket. They just responded a few minutes ago. With the following response.

    "Our engineering team is currently investigating this issue, we've attached your case to the ongoing investigation and will provide updates on it as soon as possible. Thanks for your patience in the meantime!"

    Looks like the problem is being addressed.

    Yes, same issue being seeing at my org.

    Smartsheet shows connected, yet all connections are down with the same "Private Key does not match...." error.

    Some more color - Attempting to just go around this also doesnt work. If i try to Configure Application URL in JIRA again from scratch and point to i end up with the following response in JIRA: "No response was received from the URL you entered - it may not be valid. Please fix the URL below, if needed, and click Continue."

    Good to know they are looking into it.

    I am also having the same issue, I just submit a ticket to see what is going on,. Another thing that is weird is that if you try to connect them, it tells you that you don't have access to this
