Wrong redirect after logging in with Bamboo behind mod_proxy

I have Bamboo running on a different host and masked behind an apache mod_proxy.

The problem is that during login to Bamboo, it redirects to wrong URL: /error/HTTP_NOT_FOUND.html.var

I tried running it in the "standard way" and currently running through jetty.

Anyone had that problem and has some non-invasive workaround?

I could obviously alias this to bamboo directly, but ... that's so wrong.

Hey Radoslaw,

Thanks for the question. Please have a look at this page and confirm if you have followed the steps mentioned there. Also, you can try to clean your web browser cookies and reproduce the problem. After, check what URL you see in the cookie that gets saved into your browser (browser settings -> cookies -> locate Bamboo cookies). Is that a correct URL?


Yeap. This is exactly the scenario I am running. The cookies are fine.

It just seems that Bamboo renders the wrong redirection because I can see during the login: os_destination=%252Fstart.action which is /start.action instead of /bamboo/start.action.

If I go again directly to /bamboo/ though, I am logged in, so just the initial redirection is broken.

Solved it, using SSO authentication between Crowd and Bamboo (thus avoiding the problem a bit).
