Is it possible to have multiple URLS accessing same jira instance if using reverse proxy?


I know the documentation says that Jira can only serve one URL -- but what if that URL is derived from a proxy? If you have multiple URLs resolving to the proxy, could you bypass the multiple URL limit?

I was curious.

Hi, the problem is the base URL. JIRA relies on this to function correctly. Accessing JIRA from different URLs would break this. It's the same reason why CNAME is not allowed unfortunately.

It will sort of work, but Jira will serve up and refer to the base url at all times. If you've got jiraA, jiraB and jiraC all proxied to realjira, and the base url is realjira, then a user hitting jiraA will land on realjira fine. Many of the links and facilities presented to them will still use realjira though.

You could try to do some slightly torturous url rewrites on top of the proxies, which can work, but you'll still find the baseurl goes out on emails and you can't rewrite that

is this still the case or are there some great news on this topic? 

There isn't a sane approach to having more than one url.

If you want to see mutlple base urls in jira, Please comment and vote for this:
