How are you serving up  Do you own the domain, or is it hosted for you?

Hi @Nic Brough _Adaptavist_  I don't own this domain. I only want to change the name URL, it's accessible on Intranet only. Do i need to own the domain first ?


Ok, so that's a complete non-starter.  You can't run your system on because you don't own it.

You could do it within your network, by poisoning your internal DNS servers, but that's a bad practice because you have to remember to maintain it and it masks potentially valid external sites.

So, start by selecting a good internal url you want to run Jira on.  You can set the base url to that, and then you'll need to talk to your network people about getting it added to the internal DNS so that people land on your Jira.

You will almost certainly want to use a reverse proxy to keep the config and routing as simple as possible.

Hi @Nic Brough _Adaptavist_  who will provide internal URL, do i need to check with network team for internal URL or ask them to create a new url for JIRA ? 

Once Internal URL is provided, i need to setup Reverse proxy in JIRA (server.xml file) following steps in links shared by @Fabio Racobaldo _Herzum_  and ask network team as well to add internal URL in DNS ? 

I don't know how your infrastructure is set up or who owns it, but yes, it's probably the network team who will know what the rules are for URLs for new services, and can allocate you one, then set it up so your DNS can send people to your proxy.  Your network team may also provide proxies for you.
