Jira SSL Configuration w/o X11

I want to enable https for our Jira system. For Confluence I followed the documentation and it works very well. For Jira the documentation assumes that the Jira configuration tool is used. Unfortunately X forwarding is not working because the JDK is 32bit and the X libraries are 64 bit. The console version of the configuration tool does not have the option for the WEB configuration. Is there an alternative documentation for the manual https configuration similar to the Confluence setup?

Atlassian Support pointed me to the right page, where the Jira SSL configuration is explained without the Jira configuration tool. This worked well for me.


Hi Michael

Did you try using the following link as your guideline?


Basically, the roadmap is:

1. Creating new keystore and keypair

2. Generating a certificate request

3. Installing/importing the certificate into the created keystore

4. Configuring $JIRA_INST/conf/server.xml according the documentation

5. Restarting JIRA

Please give to it a shot. Feel free to post here your questions.
