Crucible Proxy issues behind SSL VPN and Proxy Server

Experts,

 

I am currently working an a JIRA, Confluence, Crucible/ Fisheye install in a development lab that does not have access to the internet.  the topology is as follows

SSL VPN --> Firewall --> Proxy Server --> JIRA / Confluence Server

SSL VPN --> Firewall --> Proxy Server --> Crucible / Fisheye Server

(Unfortunately the topology is ugly, however it doesn't appear that we will be able to change it)

The products are sort of working after installing following Atlassian's instructions on using a proxy server. However the issues I am still seeing are really affecting usability. For now I will just focus on Crucible

For example:

Users can log into crucible via the SSL VPN but cannot initiate code reviews.  The window that comes up after clicking create code review, "select the project" just refreshes every time the create review button is clicked instead of proceeding to the add content for review window.  However if the user accesses Crucible via the proxy server from behind the firewall, they can create a code review without issue.

Also, the moderator cannot close the review from the ssl vpn.  Attempts to do so result in an XSRF error:

**********

The site URL is set to go through the proxy server. I have also set it as the ssl vpn, either way the issues persist.  The problem is proxy setting related and appears to be most applicable to AJAX calls, but I am at a loss as to what else I can set beyond the proxy server and proxy host settings in the server settings.

My primary questions are:

Has anyone else dealt with this type of configurations successfully?

Does anyone have any ideas on how to adjust the settings to make this work?

 

Thank you,

 

Scott

Hi Scott, 

 

This looks very specific environment issue. But, I don’t think SSL VPN users should pass by your proxy (unless you have a specific reason for this). Also, this proxy you’ve mentioned is a reverse proxy or a forward proxy?

For this behaviour, I guess what is happening is a routing issue. I recommend you to start checking what is the path the users from SSL VPN are doing to reach the Crucible server. I believe they might not passing the proxy on in going but returning across the proxy and this might causing this behaviour.

Hope this helps.
