nginx redirect to bitbucket

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Securing Bitbucket Server behind nginx using SSL

We have JIRA & confluence behind nginx, and we access them like https://jira.domain.dom

Your instruction gives way how to access like this:

Is it a big job to modify tomcat etc. so that the URL would "equal"

If there's already instructions for that, the links would be nice smile

That is actually how I deploy these applications. Here is the nginx config:


server {

        listen 443;

        ssl on;

        ssl_certificate ssl/yourcertificate.crt;

        ssl_certificate_key ssl/yourcertiticatekey.key;


        add_header X-Frame-Options ALLOW;  

        location / {

              proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Host $host;

              proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Server $host;

              proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;


              proxy_redirect off;

              proxy_connect_timeout 300;



server {

        listen 80;


        rewrite ^$request_uri? permanent;



In the server.xml file, update the connector for port 7990 with these options:








So the entire connector stanza looks like this:


<Connector port="7990" protocol="HTTP/1.1"












I tried this config and can't seem to get it to stop appending the 7990 at the end. Do you have this issue ?

I do not have that issue. Check the Base URL in the Server Settings page of the admin. If you previously had a port there (:7990), you'll need to remove it from the Base URL field and click "Save" at the bottom of the page.
