Activity Stream (via https) is blocked by external firewall ruleset as in iframe

A TMG (Threat Management Gateway) with login management sits infront of the JIRA Server.

When viewing the dashboard (after login) the activity stream shows the TMG home page/challenge as the applet is in the form of an iframe (which doesnt inheirt the TMG cookie).

Any ideas?

So, your JIRA server is mainly on HTTP, but the activity stream is on HTTPS which doesn't share the HTTP cookies?

Not sure if this relevant or not or if Atlassian has changed their philosophy, but I remember this note from Greenhopper release 5.5 that atlassian will stop testing with iframes.

https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/GH/GreenHopper+5.5+Release+Notes#GreenHopper5.5ReleaseNotes-JIRAiframeRemoved

JIRA 4.2 onwards includes functionality that is not designed and/or tested for use within an iframe. As such GreenHopper can no longer ensure that the page displayed in the iframe will behave as expected.

Hi Samuel,

I have found couple links with workarounds for this very same problem we are having from TMG side and they all point out clearing the block high-bit characters and normalization settings. These two changes worked for my case.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/837865/en-usThis one suggest to clear the “Block high-bit characters” check box, which I think might be a fix.
