On server.xml file:
Linux path: /opt/atlassian/confluence/conf/server.xml
Windows path: C:\Program Files\Atlassian\Confluence\conf\server.xml
Leave the original port open:
<Connector port="8090" connectionTimeout="20000" redirectPort="8443" maxThreads="48" minSpareThreads="10" enableLookups="false" acceptCount="10" debug="0" URIEncoding="UTF-8" protocol="org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11NioProtocol" />
Along with ssl port:
<Connector port="8443" maxHttpHeaderSize="8192" maxThreads="150" minSpareThreads="25" protocol="org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11NioProtocol" enableLookups="false" disableUploadTimeout="true" acceptCount="100" scheme="https" secure="true" clientAuth="false" sslProtocols="TLSv1,TLSv1.1,TLSv1.2" sslEnabledProtocols="TLSv1,TLSv1.1,TLSv1.2" SSLEnabled="true" URIEncoding="UTF-8" keystorePass="changeit" keystoreFile="/var/atlassian/key.jks"/>
Add to web.xml:
Linux path: /opt/atlassian/confluence/confluence/WEB-INF/web.xml
Windows path: C:\Program Files\Atlassian\Confluence\confluence\WEB-INF\web.xml
<security-constraint> <web-resource-collection> <web-resource-name>all-except-attachments</web-resource-name> <url-pattern>/*</url-pattern> </web-resource-collection> <user-data-constraint> <transport-guarantee>CONFIDENTIAL</transport-guarantee> </user-data-constraint> </security-constraint>
Before end of web.xml file: </web-app>
*Restart confluence service post changes on these files for the configuration to take place.
*Recommended to always do server side changes on test env before implementing on prd env
The security-constraint is essential to making it actually work! :] It doesn't redirect just based off of the redirect= statements in server.xml alone, it seems.
But, why are we excluding (seemingly) attachments from SSL?
Also, is it a bug in Confluence that some items are sent non-secure, which in turn gives a browser warning? http://confluence.hey.com/download/resources/com.atlassian.confluence.plugins.system-templates:system-template-resources/assets/images/welcome.png for example is sent non-secure even when I have redirects in place.
