Confluence redirects to HTTP when using HTTPS/nginx setup

When a user edits a page and saves it, the save back request goes to:

This has a Status Code of 302 Found, and Response Header of


So the user is redirected to HTTP which is blocked, they receive a time out and then change to HTTPS and all is fine.


The Server Base URL is set as HTTPS and everything else works, emails have the HTTPS links etc. Is this a bug, or is there an extra setting I can change somewhere in the configs to not redirect to HTTP.
