Jira + https reverse proxy (Haproxy) =>gadget.common.error.500



i finished the configuration of the reverse proxy on Https for Jira and Confluence but now i have the following error on the main screen.

I think the problem is caused by the proxy, i only change the server.xml connector section. Have i to configure otherelse? I found other topic about this problem but i don't find actually the origin of the problem.


Thank you for your help

Hello Julian,

Sorry to hear you are facing a problem.

Per the description of your error, it seems that you are being impacted by the problem mentioned in the article below:

Jira activity stream gadget throws gadget.common.error.500

Basically, an invalid or absence of a certificate can lead to such errors. Could you please double-check if you are using the correct certificate? Also, check if the correct baseUrl is set in the System -> General Configuration.

If that's not the problem, I saw another customer facing the same problem after configuring direct SSL with self-signed certificates in JIRA 8.0.1 tomcat. As you can see in this thread, he managed to fix it by adding his self-signed ca and server certificates to tomcats JRE Keystore:

keytool -importkeystore -destkeystore cacerts -srckeystore /opt/certs/servkeystore.p12 -srcstoretype pkcs12 -alias tomcat -deststorepass changeit -srcstorepass <yourstorepass> -validity 3650
keytool -importkeystore -destkeystore cacerts -srckeystore /opt/certs/keystore.p12 -srcstoretype pkcs12 -alias ca -deststorepass changeit -srcstorepass <yourstorepass> -validity 3650

Let me know if those suggestions work for you.


thanks for reply!  I solved yesterday this error by adding the cert (auto signed) to the Trustedstore , all was OK in the health. But today i created a new certificate with Letsencrypt (to avoid warning unsecure site) and even i added it to the Trustedstore, i have the error. I added it to the store of java and jira.

If i list the Trustedstore cert, i see my certificate. I redo exactly the same than the other auto signed certificate. Is it possible that the certificate need to respect an c

characteristics ? 


here the error in atlassian-jira.log

Caused by: unable to find valid certification path to requested target
... 308 more

I use this process for the check :

Result  :
HTTPClient: Connection Successful to


With SSLPoke: (10 minutes before, i had an error... -_-  )

root@Jira:/home/linus# java SSLPoke 443

Successfully connected

I still have the error on the dashboard :(

An idea? Thanks !

I solved my problem by changing the JAVA_HOME in the by the JRE

You need to install JRE => apt-get install default-jre


#JAVA_HOME="/opt/atlassian/jira/jre/"; export JAVA_HOME  => OLD


/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk-amd64/jre = $JAVA_HOME

You need to add in manually (ex : JAVA_HOME=usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk-amd64/jre)


declare it in /etc/environment (edit file and add JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk-amd64/jre)

Close and repoen session

try it by taping $JAVA_HOME you will see /usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk-amd64/jre
