I am attempting to create an application link between our JIRA Cloud instance, and a Crucible "Server" install I have made on an EC2 instance. I'm running crucible behind an NGINX reverse proxy. Initially, to test the configuration, I served our crucible instance purely on HTTP over port 80. The application link worked without issue between JIRA Cloud and our Crucible instance. However, whenever I turned on the SSL in NGINX, I received the following error while attempting to create the link:
No response was received from the URL you entered - it may not be valid. Please fix the URL below, if needed, and click Continue.
Since I didn't see any access entries hitting my NGINX logs, I assumed there was a problem with the SSL handshake. I extracted the following from the ssldump command:

The error toward the end of each connection attempt: "Alert, level: fatal, value: certificate_unknown" leads me to believe there is a problem with our certificate. However, when I connect to https://support.leafsoftwaresolutions.com, the certificate is valid according to Firefox and Chrome.
Is there any reason why our certificate would not be trusted by the JIRA Cloud instance while attempting to create the application link?
For future reference, I was able to figure out my own issue.
I noticed that not only did JIRA not authenticate, but FireFox also did not automatically trust my SSL certificate. The issue for me was in how I had installed the certificate. I was exporting the cert from a windows server that was previously hosting the same domain. When I exported the certificate from the windows certificate manager, I failed to check the "Include all certificates in the certification path if possible" check box, and thus lead me to this issue.
See this page for the full instructions to export your certificate from windows to make it ready to host on an NGINX server on Ubuntu.
