JIRA Standalone SSL behind F5 Load Balancer

I'm running JIRA 4.3.4 Standalone and I'm trying to utilize an F5 load balancer with a wildcard SSL certificate. Keep in mind I am not load balancing JIRA. It will be a single server behind a single VIP. I'm just trying to avoid installing an SSL cert directly on the server.

FYI, I was able to get Confluence running behind the F5 with Wildcard SSL cert:

I am trying to find a similar solution for JIRA.

Hi Royn

Knowing that BIGIP is based on Apache structure, I believe that you should review JIRA and Apache basic integration. After that, you my try to specify the SSL settings.

1. Integrating JIRA and Apache > http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Integrating+JIRA+with+Apache

2. Apache and JIRA integration with SSL connection > http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Integrating+JIRA+with+Apache+using+SSL

Pay attention to the tags proxyName and proxyPort in the server.xml file. I believe that your main configuration is there.

Cheers,

Paulo Renato
