Jira Servicedesk apache proxy redirect Edited

Im trying to redirect http://localhost:8080/servicedesk/customer/user/login?destination=portals to www.mydomain.com but it redirected me to "

Oops, you've found a dead link. " page instead. 

Here's my apache config.

<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerName www.myowndomain.com

ProxyRequests Off
ProxyVia Block
ProxyPreserveHost On

<Proxy *>
Order deny,allow
Allow from All

ProxyPass / http://localhost:8080/servicedesk/customer/user/login?destination=portals 
ProxyPassReverse / http://localhost:8080/servicedesk/customer/user/login?destination=portals 


Any ideas ?

Could you change this section? 

ProxyPass / http://localhost:8080/servicedesk/customer/user/login?destination=portals 
ProxyPassReverse / http://localhost:8080/servicedesk/customer/user/login?destination=portals 


ProxyPass / http://localhost:8080/servicedesk/ 
ProxyPassReverse / http://localhost:8080/servicedesk/ 

2. Or you can change context path and create simply proxy_pass.

Below this docs: https://confluence.atlassian.com/kb/proxying-atlassian-server-applications-with-apache-http-server-mod_proxy_http-806032611.html




I hope it will be helped  you.

Those proxy paths are not going to work, because Service Desk lives within Jira, and you need to set the base url for the external source.  So where you've got .../servicedesk/ that will be a base url and your service desk portals  will be under .../servicedesk/customer/...etc...

To redirect your service desk outside that, you will need to do rewrites in your Tomcat install, which Gonchik has given you the doc links for

Hi guys, I tried number 1. It doesn't work and still getting "dead link" page. So I tried number 2, with amendments on the class and adding the rewrite config according to the guide. It works, but not exactly what i have in mind. I still have to put in port 8080 along with the domain. I want my users to just put in the domain and open up the servicedesk login page.
