Configure Jira behind ELB



I am having hard times finiding correct configs for server.xml when I have Jira placed behind ELB. 


I have the following in my server.xml

        <Connector acceptCount="100" connectionTimeout="20000" disableUploadTimeout="true" enableLookups="false" maxHttpHeaderSize="8192" maxThreads="150" minSpareThreads="25" scheme="https" proxyName="jira-prod.*.com" proxyPort="443" protocol="HTTP/1.1" useBodyEncodingForURI="true"/>

ELB has a listener that listens to port 443.  


Jira is a standard web-application, you'll need to look up how to configure your ELB really, whichever one it is.

Not sure how this helps to be honest 

It can't help. 

The server settings on the JIRA side are for the service and you've followed the instructions for a proxy.  You don't need to change them more to place JIRA behind an ELB - the rest of the config, which presumably doesn't work, is on that.

Although I would consider trying it without wildcards in the proxyName to start with.

There is no wildcard in the proxy name (I removed the domain name). The problem was related to the connector's configuration I posted originally (it had no port settings). 

This is the wokring connector setting.


Found the problem. Connector settings had missing port which made ELB  proxying not wokring.
