Activity stream - no activity found

Hello

 

I've got two, very similar installations of JIRA. One is 5.1.5, second one is 6.4.

I am unable to get the Activity Stream running on the 6.4 instance (they don't share same database, these are JIRAs for two separate companies).

I am sure it's related to domain/host configuration, as at one stage I saw the activity stream when I was changing some network settings, but it was only for a moment and I don't remember exactly what I have changed.

The only difference between the two, is that I hold reverse dns entries for the first one in my own DNS, the other one don't have them.

My network looks like this:

 

jira.company1.com > gateway > port 80 redirect > www gateway > virtual host redirect > server A port 8010

jira.company2.com > gateway > port 80 redirect > www gateway > virtual host redirect > server B port 8080

 

For my www gateway I use nginx, it's located on a separate virtual machine.

Both JIRA installations are standard.

Here are the entries for both virtual hosts:

server {
  listen 80;
  server_name jira.company1.com;
  location / {
    proxy_set_header Host $host;
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Host $host;
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Server $host;
    proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
    proxy_pass http://10.10.0.6:8010/;
  }
}
 
server {
  listen 80;
  server_name jira.company2.com;
  location / {
    proxy_set_header Host $host;
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Host $host;
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Server $host;
    proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
    proxy_pass http://10.10.0.8:8080/;
  }
}

Gateway, www gateway, server A and server B are separate virtual machines.

 

On the JIRA installation, where activity stream does not work, calling:

http://jira.company2.com/activity?maxResults=10&os_authType=basic&title=undefined

returns proper data.

 

Could you please let me know, what else should I check?

 

I've search through the web and:

  • there are no issues without summary on this installation
  • the permissions are set correctly (like I've mentioned, when I was changing network settings I saw the activity stream working).

I just confirmed one thing. When I connect to my VPN, so I can actually access the server where jira is using its internal IP, I can see the activity stream, the moment I disconnect, the activity stream becomes empty.
