we are planning to host jira for external customers, We have jira version 6.1.7 installed on windows server 2008,And DMZ on another server.
what we want is to allow external users to access jira via a address e.g myjira.com\jira
please advice / suggest steps to achive this, as we are running out of time any help is appreciated.
If you were using Apache, it's a straightforward "proxy pass" on the DMZ Apache server. I believe you can mimic this (although it's not pretty) using "Application Request Routing" in IIS.
However, whatever method you use to do this, you MUST remember that Jira only has one base URL - it won't run properly if you use another url to reach it.
Would you mind explaining the 'proxy pass' on the DMZ Apache Server? We have a internal deployment of both JIRA and Confluence, which I am trying to make accessible via the web. Would I use this method to expose both of the application servers to the web?
Note: In our environment the web server must be placed in the DMZ to offer external access.
All I know about doing it on IIS is that "Application request routing" does much the same as "proxy pass". I have done it, but it was many years ago, and I was able to muddle through the docs with some help from an IIS person. You have IIS running on your DMZ server, and when a user lads on certain urls, it goes and asks another server for the actual data.
