I know we need to change a base URL in JIRA configuration from a webUI. But how do we change our current tomcat settings to reflect our requested url of https://jira.company.com/? I know it's being done somewhere in server.xml file, but what exactly need to be changed there? I'm not sure if we have some kind of reverse proxy in place. I know JIRA was installed with whatever was in a package with JIRA out of the box, I can tell it's a Tomcat but not sure if it's working as a reverse proxy. Could you also please advice if it's working as a reverse proxy out of the box?
Thanks in advance!
To know if do you have a reverse proxy setup on JIRA, check your <jira-install-folder>/conf/server.xml and look for proxyName and proxyPort parameters. If there is, then you have a reverse proxy with JIRA.
To enable HTTPS on JIRA, you need to change the baseURL and also enable the HTTPS connector on server.xml.
I believe these documentations will help you. The first is related to reverse proxy and the second related to HTTPS with JIRA.
Hope this helps.
