Is there any way to configre Nginx Reverse-Proxy for Jira Cloud application?

I'm trying to setup Nginx Reverse-Proxy for Jira Cloud application in order to make caching on our side because sometimes Jira Cloud works slowly for us.

I have configuration file below.


server {

  listen 80;
  location / {

    return 301 https://$server_name$request_uri;

server {

  listen 443 default ssl;

  root /usr/share/nginx/html;

  ssl_certificate /etc/nginx/cert.crt;
  ssl_certificate_key /etc/nginx/cert.key; # self-signed

  ssl on;
  ssl_session_cache builtin:1000 shared:SSL:10m;
  ssl_protocols TLSv1 TLSv1.1 TLSv1.2;
  ssl_prefer_server_ciphers on;

  include /etc/nginx/default.d/*.conf;

  client_max_body_size 10M;

  location / {

    proxy_set_header Host $host;
    proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;


  error_page 404 /404.html;
  location = /40x.html {


  error_page 500 502 503 504 /50x.html;
  location = /50x.html {


And it doesn't work.

I see error as on the attached screenshot.

Probably should I add/change something in Nginx configuration file?

I didn't do this, but, 

I think the proxy should be forward proxy server (or cache proxy).

By configuring proxy.pac file carefully, you can make only jira traffic pass thru your cache  server. 

Hope this help.

It won't work.

To make Jira work with a proxy, you have to 

  1. Set up the proxy to talk to Jira and present itself to the intended network
  2. Tell Jira it is behind a proxy
  3. Change Jira's base url to match the proxy

You don't have access to items 2 and 3 on Cloud.

For Atlassian services to function correctly behind a proxy, the systems running them need to know that they are being proxied, so you need to configure them on the service side.

You cannot do that to Cloud servers.

Probably, is there a way to organize cache server for Jira Cloud?
