Confluence Admin Page when terminating SSL on AWS ELB

I have a confluence running on a EC2 instance and an AWS ELB in front of it terminating the SSL.

The ELB have two listeners:

HTTPS 443 -> HTTP 80

HTTPS 8090 -> HTTP 8090

The port 80 has an Apache server used as reverse proxy and the 8090 is used by Tomcat. As you can see, the SSL is terminated on the ELB.

The security group allows the world to connect to HTTPS 443 and only my office to connect direct to tomcat at HTTPS 8090.

Everything works fine, except when I try to access the admin page:

https://confluence.<myoffice>.com:8090/admin

It tries to redirect to a page using HTTP, and this port is not open using HTTP on the ELB, as stated before.

How should I change the Tomcat or Confluence configuration to not redirect to http?

Thank you
