After upgrade to Jira 7.4.3 some calls calling localhost

We have just upgraded our Jira installation to 7.4.3, all was good before the upgrade.

The site is mostly working on the assigned base URL however now some calls, often originating from batch.js, are calling back to localhost. In particular the Average Age Chart and Activity Stream Chart gadgets are broken although other gadgets on the system dashboard are working correctly.

Also the dismissNotification call is returning a 403 error.

Thanks Lars - I hadn't set up the proxy name and port in server.xml.

The most likely explanation is that your hosts file is set up incorrectly.  Check the localhosts mappings and ip address.

I did have the hostname from the base URL mapped to localhost. I've taken that out so and restarted Jira but I'm still getting the same errors e.g.




Could localhost be cached somewhere?

Ssl, proxy?

Perhaps you forgot changes to server.xml.

Tried instead? 

No, that's not what I said.  Your base url should be the url you want to access the system on.  It doesn't need "mapping".

Look at your hosts file on the server.  For Linux it will be /etc/hosts

You need to make sure that is correct.  Specifically, what does that say for any lines that contain "localhost"
