how to change this in IP xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/jira?

This is done by front-ending your installation with a apache mod proxy. Atlassian own guide is available here:

https://confluence.atlassian.com/doc/using-apache-with-mod_proxy-173669.html

 

You can do it with other web servers, and it is possible with just Tomcat (but I don't recommend that, as it's a bit of a fiddle - certainly a *lot* more complex than just sticking Apache or Nginx in front of it)

Another option is to change tomcats context path and the port (server.xml i believe). On linux you also need to make sure the service account (non-root) running JIRA has permission to open the port 80 (setcap or authbind).
