Combined Confluence with Nginx Ldap Auth, Authentication window pops up multiple times

Hi, all.

For some security reason, I combined the Confluence with Nginx LDAP Auth(the nginx module link: https://github.com/kvspb/nginx-auth-ldap )

And I'm using Nginx as a reverse proxy server, At the first time, it seems ok, When i type the Confluence URL in the browser, the browser pop up a window and let me type in my AD username and password. And then the page will turn to the home page automaticly... but I want it shows the Confluence login page.

I think browser passed the username/password automaticly to the Confluence authentication api,So I add the following in my nginx config:

proxy_set_header Authorization "";

it will drop the authorization info when LDAP auth succeed. then the page turned to Confluence login page successfully. 

but some new issues occur again... after i added this, the authentication window pops up three or four times..

does anyone have some solutions?

thanks.
