Running Bamboo 5.0.1 over HTTPS

I'm trying to get Bamboo 5.0.1 to run over HTTPS/ssl. I followed the instructions at but when I try to access Bamboo, all I see is a jetty error page for "Error 503 Service Unavailable". Nothing appears in atlassian-bamboo.log.

Just a quick FYI, in Bamboo 5.1 (due next week) we have moved the standalone from Jetty to Tomcat 7 which will make the process of setting up HTTPS a lot easier.

Great! I'll wait for 5.1 to appear before trying again. Hopefully the docs will be updated to reflect the change?

Hi Tom,

Is your bamboo application working normally with HTTP/ssl?

Are your confluence also working with HTTPS/ssl?

If you are setting up an application link and one of your applications is using SSL and the other is not they will not trust each other.

If both of your apps are working with HTTP/ssl you could try using this KB.

I am just trying to enable SSL on bamboo. I have no problems using bamboo without ssl (only http).

Hi Tom,

Had the same issue. Bamboo is running on a windows machine.

I followed the step in the documentation and added the extra "." in jetty.xml:

Please not that using this part might fail for Windows: "<SystemProperty name="bamboo.webapp"default="./webapp"/>". In that case use 2 dots before "/webapp"

&lt;SystemProperty name="bamboo.webapp" default="../webapp"/&gt;

It worked for me.
