Anyone running JIRA 7.3 over HTTPS?

Trying to upgrade to v7.3 this evening and the service fails to start if the application is set to run over HTTPS or HTTP redirecting to HTTPS. HTTP only works fine using the same port numbers.

I cannot find anything useful in the Windows logs or the catlina/JIRA logs so it looks like I am going to have to roll back the upgrade to v7.2.7 which I was previously running over SSL. I have been running JIRA over SSL since v6.2.5 in 2014 so I am used to the setup and configuration of it but 7.3 will not play.

Just wondering if anyone is successfully running 7.3 over SSL before I raise it with Atlasassian?

Looks like this is a known issue. See: JRA-63734

Hi Matthew,

Yes. I am running 7.3.0 (fresh install) over SSL. I use Nginx as proxy server, similar to the set up described here:


Hi Sam

Thanks for letting me know - I will continue my investigation at this end.
