Error creating project, XSRF check failed



Ive just installed JIRA and Im getting this error 'Error creating project, XSRF check failed' when creating projects.  Ive tried every answer I can find by searching and googling the error but Im getting nowhere.  Im using apache mod_proxy to proxy requests to our server over to https.  

Ive tried this but not sure how to Ensure that all JIRA's header are not blocked?? - this is already set correctly according to my file when I check it?? 

Be great if you could help me resolve this issue.

Thank you in advance.

Hello Andrew,

Do you have a proxy in your network? Did you try adding the below parameters?

proxyName="" proxyPort="443" scheme="https"


Where do you enter these parameters? Thanks

This worked for me - I was using a reverse Proxy on a front-end apache server, and had the wrong host name on the JIRA server (JIRA_HOME/conf/server.xml, in the <Connector> tag).


i inserted in the server.xml all paramenter

proxyName="" proxyPort="443"/> but i still have the same issue.


is there anyone that can help me?




I figured this out, edit server.xml and head down to the <Connectors> tag. There are a couple of templates there which are commented out. I commented the default <Connector> tag, and a couple templates below, I uncommented the one for 'HTTPS - Proxying Jira via Apache or Nginx over HTTPS':

<Connector port="8080" relaxedPathChars="[]|" relaxedQueryChars="[]|{}^&#x5c;&#x60;&quot;&lt;&gt;"
maxThreads="150" minSpareThreads="25" connectionTimeout="20000" enableLookups="false"
maxHttpHeaderSize="8192" protocol="HTTP/1.1" useBodyEncodingForURI="true" redirectPort="8443"
acceptCount="100" disableUploadTimeout="true" bindOnInit="false" secure="true" scheme="https"
proxyName="" proxyPort="443"/>


Remember to change proxyName, proxyPort, and scheme.


After that, its working fine for me at
