Removing path "/jira" from every incoming request


I'd need assistance in configuring an URL rewrite. I dont have Apache integrated to Jira, I'm using the Linux JIRA Standalone installation.

We change our entry point for Jira from "" to "". So currently, both domains are pointing to our JIRA instance. We now have 100s of links like "" that wont work anymore. I need JIRA to remove the path "/jira" from every incoming request, so that above URL will end up as "".

How can I achieve that without having Apache integrated?

There's an urlrewrite.xml in my WEB-INF folder. What do I have to put in there to make this happen and how can I make sure that my urlreqrite.xml is enabled?

Thanks for your help & Cheers,
