Stash Application Link creation does not use https

When creating an application link from stash to jira, and both services running with on https with nginx as reverse proxy during the creation process a plain http link is generated for stash: 

Url Pattern: http://stash.domain.tld/rest/applinks/2.0/applicationlink/[....]



I have a nginx reverse proxy with TLS set up according to the nginx-proxy-ssl tutorial, for jira, confluence and stash.

I use a self signed certificate and the signing certificate has been added sucessfully to the systems trust store.

I was able to create an application link from JIRA to confluence and visa versa, whichout any issue.

Alle three applications completly run over https, without any problems ( no mixed content and so on ).


My Problem occours when i try to setup the link from stash to JIRA ( the other way around works without any issue ).


One more note: before switching to https, creating the link was possible, so there should not be any general network issue in that direction.



Some details:


When i create the application link the following happens:

PUT: https ://

is called which is correct, but returns:


{"status-code":201,"resources-created":[{"href": http://",



It appears the within the authentication communication the wrong scheme is returned.

Thus the browser will try an http and not https request, which is invalid and will not work (no http setup and chrome blocks the request anyway )


Here are the settings of nginx and the stash connector:


proxy_redirect off;
    proxy_set_header Host $host;
    proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Host $host;
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto $scheme; # also tried https, same result
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Server $host;



<Connector port="7990" protocol="HTTP/1.1"
compressableMimeType="text/html,text/xml,text/plain,text/css,application/json,application/javascript,application/x-javascript" />

Hi Dennis,

Can you confirm you've changed Stash's Base URL to reflect the HTTPS URL in Stash Administration > Server settings?

Dear Gustavo, 

yes I can confirm that. 

JIRA and Stash have a https base url configured.
