Using SSL on Bamboo

Our bamboo server is running on http and would like to change it to https.  Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong.  I uncommented a connector on server.xml on bamboo.  What else do I need to do.  Bamboo is installed on the same server our JIRA is and JIRA runs on SSL.

Hey Alma,


There are two ways you can go about it.

One is to run SSL directly in Bamboo. This means uncommenting the HTTPS connector as you have already done, but there are some additional steps. Securing Bamboo with Tomcat using SSL walks you through the steps to generate a self-signed SSL certificate and set it up in the connector that you've uncommented.

The more common method in a production environment however, is to set up SSL in a reverse proxy like Apache or Nginx, and having that take care of HTTPS. In Bamboo you would not uncomment the HTTPS connector, you'd use the plain HTTP connector and just tell it about your reverse proxy. Securing your Atlassian applications with SSL using Apache covers this in great detail, and shows both Bamboo and the Apache configuration examples.

Take a look and let me know if you get stuck!

Thank you.  I will try it.  We do have a SSL certificate and we are using it for JIRA which both are in the same server.

I uncommented the connector but it didn't work.  Tried a few things and it still would not work.

I'm already using SSL for JIRA and they are on the same server.
