How can I websudo under load balancer?


I'm setting up a JIRA Data Center in AWS and an issue rose up

  • we can't use administration pages through load balancer - no error - just websudo login don't complete;
  • when connecting to a specific cluster node, it logs into wesudo, and we have no problem;

We are using ehcache.listener.hostName = <node-hostname> on file, because RMI was throwing UnknownHostException without it.

When I've tried setting

ehcache.listener.hostname = <load-balancer-hostname>

RMI couldn't connect to Load Balancer on 40001 due to connection refused. Setting a listener rule in the ELB for port 40001 made no changes on outcome.

Anyone have experienced something similar?

Thanks in advance

If anyone encounters this issue, here is what we were missing...

Enable a Stickiness Policy on your listeners

Enable Stickiness with application cookie and set JSESSIONID as Cookie Name.

Hope this helps,
