Subject Re: Problems while indexing Jira/ and an other problem

The web connector will not send a secured site's cookies to a page
that does not match the regular expression that defines the overall
secured area.  Your secured area url seems to be
"http://.../jira/secure/IssueNavigator.jspa", which is not sufficient

for example "http://.../jira/browse/project-5", I get the message that I am not logged in
