We will switch from the Jira and Confluence server edition to the data center edition. As such we will also need to configure a load balancer in front.
I now have a question regarding the load balancer configuration: is it required to enable source IP forwarding? I assume this is not required? Difference is basically if it is not enabled, then Jira/Confluence will always see the IP adress of the load balancer, otherwise it would see the IP of the real client. I would configure the header X-Forwarded-for, so still I would have the information. Does anybody has experience with this?
I did not find any requirement for this but wanted to ensure I do configure it correctly. I definitely need sticky sessions, I will do this.
Any advice is very welcome.
