Switch from HTTP to HTTPS

Hi Experts,

I have a JIRA server-core instance that is running internally with HTTP.  We want to move away from unsecure URL's to using a wildcard SSL cert of ours. 

For example: 

What is the simplest way of doing this?  I am currently trying to change server.xml to make this work but i must be doing something wrong because whenever I try updating things here Jira refuses to startup.  I have a * wildcard SSL cert in pfx, crt, and .key formats using OpenSSL.

@JonathanWelcome to the community!

It is a great move. Using HTTP in today's age is not a great choice for an organization. Coming to the problem in hand,

  • The best way to do this is by using reverse proxy server,
    • You install reverse proxy server (like Nginx or Apache HTTPD)
    • And proxy setting that redirect all incoming request to Jira.
  • This way you don't have to change anything in your Jira configuration, (this is also very helpful when you upgrade Jira)
  • Also, you can block access on port 8080 from outside world, and just allow people to connect of 443 (default https port) and also redirect port 80 to 443.
  • Using reverse proxy will also ensure that you don't have to add certificates to every application in organization, and you can store it at single place
