Jira and Confluence URL redirection

Hi Everyone,

Good Evening!!

I have a query here regarding URL redirection. when we search http://xyz10:8080/ it redirects to http://xyz10:8080/secure/Dashboard.jspa for jira and http://xyz10:8090/ to http://xyz10:8090/login.action?os_destination=%2Findex.action&permissionViolation=true for confluence.

Where can i find this configuration for both jira and confluence and is it editable??

Thank you for your feedback.

Why would you want to edit those?  Those are the default pages for logging in and application entry.



Hi Peter,

Thanks for the swift reply.

I are tring to publish jira and confluence over internet with reverse proxy through netscaler.

For our scenario both the application jira and confluence is on the same server  jira on 8080 and confluence on 8090.

Redirection of the request is expected as follows:

JIRA: https://xyz.domain.com/ to http://abc10:8080/login.jsp  

Confluence: https://xyz.domain.com/wiki/ to http://abc10:8090/login.action?os_destination=%2Findex.action&permissionViolation=true

Please suggests is it feasible through reverse proxy or any solution for this??

Thank you for your kind support.

Shib, not sure how the netscalers are configured but yes, you can run a reverse proxy in front of Jira and confluence.  I do this using Apache in form of my instances.  Check this doc out.



It focuses on using Apaches as the proxy but the ideas will be the same for the netscalers.

Hi Peter,

We are done with set up configuration on netscaler by assigning a virtual server to the IP where Jira and confluence is hosted.

Do you have any idea that is there any changes need to be done on application level. After completing all the configuration, when hitting the new url with https it is not accessible and getting the error message "site can not be reached".

Thanks and Regards,

Make sure you configure the server.xml file.  Step 3 for the link above.

Hi Peter,

Could you please describe the approach for reverse proxy using apache and after that what will be network team's involvement in this task.

Thank you in advance!!
