We are going to commence our enterprise rollout with Atlassian Suite and our currently focusing on our deployment architecture for the same. I would like to know up-front whether Nginx Web Server can be used with JIRA. I have seen a lot of articles and blogs on the same as well as topics on Atlassian Answers, but I wanted to be doubly sure that it would be supported if at all we run into any integration problems with the same. I found Knowledge Base and documentation for Confluence and Fisheye/Crucible with Nginx, so I am assuming there would be no support / integration problems with these products.
I received a reply from Atlassian support.
Basically, any web server - Apache HTTPD, IIS or Nginx - is considered third party software and as mentioned in Support offerings, Atlassian will provide documentation and help in integrating with them but not support when a failure occurs in 3rd party software.
For the rest, we are going to proceed with a POC with Nginx and rely on documentation and community forums to achieve the integration with Atlassian Suite.
I believe nginx CAN be used as a proxy for JIRA, however, this is not supported, as mentioned in the Support Offerings : https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/Support/Atlassian+Support+Offerings#AtlassianSupportOfferings-3rdpartysupport
