Please could I get some help? Please bear in mind I am by no means an expert on this subject so a dumbed down guide would be very helpful. I am trying to setup proxy server settings in Conflunece I believe this needs to be done on the JAVA side but Atlassian support cant help with this apparently its not supported as its JAVA.....
Anyway any help would be much appreciated.
A proxy sits between a server and a client, passing network traffic, and there are loads of reasons for using them. Your question, while totally understandable, actually doesn't tell us enough about what you're trying to do with the proxy. That will need clarifying before we can help you much!
So, are you:
Apologies. I would like Confluence to gain external internet access via our internal proxy server. This requirement has come to light as we would like to use the Twitter macro embedded into our site. Now our Confluence server does not have direct access to the internet, so the macro is currently not working.
Thank you for your time.
Kind Regards, Grant
Ok, great. Sorry I had to ask for clarification, but I wasn't quite getting which one it was!
This isn't strictly a Confluence question, as Confluence is an "application" that runs within an application server. The application itself doesn't usually have any network access (unless it's network related software!) it relies on the application server to do all of the work. Confluence is almost always run on Tomcat, so we need to make Tomcat aware of the outgoing proxy.
Although Atlassian don't directly support it, they've documented it, and this generally works - https://confluence.atlassian.com/doc/configuring-web-proxy-support-for-confluence-117068.html - start with a run through that, and tell us if you get stuck or don't get what it's telling you.
