Troubleshooting the Hub Integration

This page describes the most frequently encountered problems with the Hub integration and the steps you can take to resolve them.

Connectivity Issues

The most obvious indication that there is a problem with your Hub integration is when users are unable to log in. To determine whether YouTrack can establish a connection to the Hub service, check the login form.

  • If the connection to Hub is active, the Hub login form is displayed.
  • If the connection is broken, the native YouTrack login form is displayed.

The Connection to Hub metric on the Hub Integration page displays the current connection status. If any of the following status messages are shown, there is a problem with YouTrack that requires the attention of the support team. To resolve any of these issues, submit a support request.

  • Empty Hub URL
  • Malformed Hub URL
  • Wrong Hub URL
  • YouTrack is not registered in Hub
  • YouTrack is registered in Hub but its service ID and secret do not match

If any of the following conditions are present, follow the instructions provided to investigate and resolve the problem.

ConditionYouTrack cannot establish a connection to the Hub service. The Connection to Hub status reads Can't connect to Hub or Connection to Hub timed out. When you attempt to log in, you see the message Permission management service (Hub) is unavailable.
CauseThe Hub service has shut down or is unresponsive.
SolutionVerify the condition by accessing the built-in Hub service. Click the Hub URL on the Hub Integration page. You can also access the Hub service directly in your web browser. Enter the hostname of your YouTrack instance, followed by /hub. For example, https://youryoutrackhostname/hub.

If you are unable to establish a connection, restart the Hub service.

If the problem persists, submit a support request. For faster processing, attach your ring.log and youtrack.log files.
