crowd2 Jenkins plugin crashes if user not found

    • Jenkins v2.73.1
      JIRA 7.1.7
      Crowd2 plugin 1.8

      I am trying to configure groups support in Crowd2 plugin for Jenkins.

      Let's say we have two groups in our JIRA: systems and developers. As stated in documentation, I put both in 'Restrict Groups' section, separated by commas: systems,developers . It works if user sys (a member of systems group) is trying to login and does not work if user dev (a member of developers group). If I change the order and put developers,systems, then dev can login and sys cannot_._ The problem is that JIRA Crowd2 API returns 404 when the plugin asks if user dev is a member of systems (and he is not):

      and the exceptions is thrown:

      Checking group membership for user 'dev' and group 'systems'...

      The connection check failed.
      com.atlassian.crowd.exception.InvalidCrowdServiceException: The following URL does not specify a valid Crowd User Management REST service: https://myjira.net/rest/usermanagement/1/group/user/direct?groupname=systems&username=dev    at com.atlassian.crowd.integration.rest.service.RestExecutor$MethodExecutor.executeCrowdServiceMethod(RestExecutor.java:455)

          at de.theit.jenkins.crowd.CrowdAuthenticationManager.authenticate(CrowdAuthenticationManager.java:116)

      The exception is not handled correctly, so the plugin even does not try to check if dev is a member of developers group after.

      Since, the exception is thrown by Client Integration Client of v2.7.1 I tried to rebuild the plugin against v2.8.3, however it did not help.
