Confluence Redirect HTTP Requests to HTTPS

How do you redirect http requests to https

2 answers

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


<condition type="scheme" operator="equal">https</condition>">operator="equal">

<condition type="port" operator="equal">443</condition>
