Using an SSL configuration behind NGINX

Hi all,

At our company, we use JIRA, Bamboo, Stash, and Crowd as our development servers. We recently migrated to a different server, and we would like to force https. We have a valid certificate, but when we modify conf/server.xml on jira stash and bamboo and put the reverse proxy information it breaks the application links and we are unable to re-establish them. There is no error message in the logs, and all it says is that the application is not responding and to relocate it, which is odd since we haven't changed anything since putting the reverse proxy info into server.xml and I can still access the services locally.

My question is, how would you recommend running these services in https-only mode, and do you have any idea why it's breaking all my application links?

Hey Aaron.

If you are forcing the use of https you will need to change your baseurl on jira,bamboo,stash and crowd and then point the applink urls to https too.

Hope this helps.

Unfrotunately that does not work, and simply fails with unable to connect to X where X is the application. It is a 100% valid SSL certificate. I was also unable to find any meaningful errors in the error log.
