Confluence & SSL - redirect via the shipped Tomcat


we've currently installed the Confluence application with the shipped Tomcat and configured secure access with SSL. At the moment everything works fine, but nevertheless we have one open issue we don't know how to solve it.

Due our infrastructure policies confluence should be accessible via https://confluence.domain.local and only accessible via this url. The problem is now, that the application is also accessible via https://confluence.

The perfect solution for us now would be a URL redirect from https://confluence to https://confluence.domain.local. The problem is that i have absolutely no clue how to configure this in the shipped Tomcat?

Does anybody know what i have to configure to implement an URL redirect (in the way we need it?).

Thanks in advance,

I recently tried to configure a rule in the urlrewrite.xml - but the redirect does not work at all.

=> If you have any idea, please reply! :)

We usually suggest setting up Apache with mod_rewrite for this. However it does look like you can do it with Tomcat too. Just Google around for 'tomcat url rewrite'.
