jira 5 configure SSL with load balancer

want to configure jira to use https ssl with a load balancer device such as netscaler

? Isnt this question more like 'how do I cluster jira' so that I could (for example) then scale out http connections and possible https?

SSL is secure, it means there is not state, the only way something can do load balancing is to terminate SSL, normally this happens at the edge of your network, if you're really paranoid, you could re-establish SSL to either additional web servers or app server instances.

Unfortunately there is no OOB support for clustering or load balancing JIRA, you are limited to data partitioning amongst individual instance. Load balancing one endpoint address therefor will not be viable.

I have setup the following:

load balancing 2 jira instances over HTTP on port 9898

load balancer is up and configured with non addressable IP

to then be only reachable for clients on the HTTP with a redirect towards SSL and listening to the following


this worx I see all traffic accepted on contentsswitch but loading times are double and if I enable cashing its even worse.
