For the last year and a half there has been continuous problems with the Jira Api application link.
It usually lasts a month before it stops responding. My initial suspicion was that if the link was unused for a period of time that this would cause issues but I have recently found out this is not the problem.
Around March 10th I set up this link once again. I have been using it on and off successfully for the last month with no issues. 12th of April, I was successfully using the Api all morning. On returning from my lunch at 2 the link failed.
I did not alter any settings in Jira itself, I didn’t even log into Jira that day. I did nothing differently to any other day over that month that could explain this failure.
Can some explanation be provided as to why this might be happening?
