Integrating JIRA and Confluence http and https

We have Confluence and JIRA installed on two separate servers. The Confluence site is set up with SSL and uses an https URL (for Edit in Office) while Jira is not and uses plain http. I can view JIRA issues from within Confluence without any problem. However, when an issue is linked from Confluence, I get a link labeled [Wiki Page] (which works fine, BTW), and the text next to the link says "You do not have permissions to view this link" which is incorrect. Can someone confirm that this is because of the http/https differences? We can move JIRA to be secure, but would like some assurance that this will indeed fix the problem. Since the integration works in the other direction, and I have double checked the Application Links configuration, I don't know what else it could be.

I found the answer here (and upvoted!):

This URL also needs to be listed in the Confluence incoming/Jira outgoing authentication:


All works well now.

That is nothing to do with http/https. It should be permissions I believe? How did you configure Application Links? Are you using OAuth or basic authentication?

If you are using OAuth, make sure the person who logged into wiki can actually see the issue in JIRA as well.

I am testing with my own login, which has administrator privileges in both Jira and Confluence.

I am using Trusted Applications, not OAuth or basic. For Confluence incoming/Jira outgoing authentication, I have no IP pattern specified, as this is only on our internal network. The URL patterns set are



You were right, it had nothing to do with http/https.
