Integrating Jira and Confluence over SSL


I am trying to integrate JIRA and Confluence together. They both run over port 8080 on their respective machines but are accessible over https through a reverse proxy.

The documentation mention about importing Confluence certs into the JIRA box. In this case should I be importing the proxy's SSL cert?


Any help will be much appreciated.

Hey Naweed,

Yes, you should import the proxy's SSL from JIRA into the Confluence's cacerts, and also import the Confluence one into the JIRA's cacerts.

Since you configured the reverse proxy to handle the HTTPS, Confluence will request JIRA through JIRA's Proxy, so Confluence will need to have its certificate imported and vice-versa.

I hope it helps!

Hello Naweed,


That's correct. Although you use only one SSL URL to both applications, both of them have to import the certificate into its own cacerts to trust it when creating the Application Links between them, for example.


Let me know if you have any questions.

Hi Eduardo,

Thanks for your response, just so that I am clear on the steps.

  • Import Proxy SSL into JIRA cacerts
  • ImPort Proxy SSL into Confluence Cacerts

We use only one SSL URL attached to the proxy server to acess both apps.



Confluence -

Many thanks for your help.



Hey Naweed, That's right! Please, let me know if you face any problems with this configuration, ok? Best regards, Eduardo Mallmann

Thanks Eduardo - much appreciated.

You're welcome, Naweed! I'm glad I was able to help you :)
