Hi Vinay, 


The error 502 means The server is currently unavailable (because it is overloaded or down for maintenance). Generally, this is a temporary state. 

I recommend you to check your Confluence connections. Looks like your proxy is trying to communicate to Confluence, but Confluence is too busy to reply.
