Atlassian public facing


I am looking to possibly separate my Atlassian systems on their own servers, but I need to figure out how to be able to allow the localhost:7990 to be able to be publicly faced as Can anyone point me to the right article, on what I need to do fo certs, and having the tomcat allow that to be read properly? Or should I use IIS?

The usual way to do this is to use a proxy.  You expose the proxy to the internet and then tell it to route traffic back to your internal servers.  In theory, you could just allow Tomcat onto the internet, but proxies have many advantages (e.g.  routing everything through a standard port, allowing multiple applications to run under one url, better logging, caching etc etc etc)

Generally, you find people use Apache to do this, although Nginx is popular too.  See   If you're not familiar with them, or prefer IIS,  then IIS can do the same - see

usually recommend that you get the http side working first

I tried the IIS way, and I have everything setup, but for some reason, when I go to the link it doesn't do anything. Just shows blank page. internally, I can go to the link but with port number added at the end, and it then gives me an error that the url is being directed to the wrong port. These are the settings I have set for JIRA


<Service name="Catalina">

<Connector port="8080"


proxyName="" proxyPort="80" scheme="http"/>

That looks correct on the Tomcat side, so the problem is something in IIS.  I don't know IIS well enough to guide you outside what the documentation says.
