OAuth config on Bamboo trying to access

I am tying to use Application Links to link an internal Bamboo instance with Jira cloud.  I add the link in Jira, it does the redirection to Bamboo, and then it errors out in Bamboo.

The root of the problem is that the Incoming Authentication and Outgoing Authentication panels in Bamboo show broken pages within the iframe.  The issue appears to be that the iframes are trying to load content from


I have verified that the Base URL on the General Configuration screen is correct.  It is using the URL of the Apache server that sits in front of Bamboo (which is using named virtual hosts).

The Apache config looks ok to me, but here is it.

<VirtualHost *:80>

    ServerName mybambooserver.com

    ErrorLog logs/bamboo-error_log

    CustomLog logs/bamboo-access_log common

    ProxyRequests OFF

    <Location />



        Order allow,deny

        Allow from all




It feels like there is some other configuration change that needs to be made in Bamboo.


Here is what it looks like in Bamboo.

The solution is to add the hostname and proxy port to the <Connector> in conf/server.xml



It seems weird that Bamboo has you set a Base URL so that all of the links work properly, but then doesn't use it when creating Application Links.
