Jira Core behind Webseal . Can´t remove permissions

Our Jira Core  (7.1.6) is behind a IBM Tivoli Webseal proxy.

 Webseal junction is unauthenticated. So everyone is able to access the Jira Application. You have to authenticate on the Jira Server

Works fine so far.


But in some areas there are problems.



Remove permission from Permission Scheme is not possible


Issues  >> Permissions Schemes   Select Schema  (e.g. Test123) >> Browse Projects >> Remove


Error Messagge: We weren't able to complete your last action It could be for a variety of reasons, like a network or application error. You could try again, or refresh the page and try again.




Accessing the Jira application directly without the webseal works fine



The DELETE request doesn´t doesn´t reach the JIRA server when accessing throug the webseal, although DELETE,POST, PUT .. are allowed methods


This is the request without the Webseal. - - [13/Jul/2016:11:37:18 +0200] "DELETE /rest/internal/2/managedpermissionscheme/10404 HTTP/1.1" 200 1461 "!default.jspa?schemeId=10404" "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/51.0.2704.103 Safari/537.36" 1081 2241



Anyone else using JIRA behind a Webseal

I've run into it a couple of times, and in both cases, the answer was that the Webseal server was mishandling requests.  At a glance, it looked like it was configured correctly, but a look at the logs showed it was doing the wrong things.  I think you've got the same issue from what you've said - you need an expert on Webseal to find out and fix the settings that are interfering with the requests going to the JIRA server (I certainly needed help from a Webseal consultant.  Even off the shelf, it's a poor product for configuring)

Found the reason.


The JIRA DELETE Request has a body with "content"

JIRA is sending something like  „{"grantsToDelete":[11911]}“

in the body.

But Webseal expects a content length of 0  


There is a similiar problem mentioned in this ticket with IIS

How to manage many similar workflows?

I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
