We have had a change in our internal network and got a new domain. Our network team did set necessary forwarding rules for IP address and domain. JIRA still runs normal with the old domain name but that will be switched off soon. When I set the Base URL in JIRA to the new domain I get some weird appearances. If I open JIRA in browser with the new URL jira.new-domain.org everything is fine. If I'm using the old jira.old.domain I'll get a new login window with username & password at the new domain when I switch dashboards or open the administration pages. Also I have some trouble with SSL certificates and so on.
For that reason I want to redirect the URL if a user comes over the old URL. I've already read some guides how to configure the urlrewrite.xml but it simply doesn't work.
That is the file:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <!DOCTYPE urlrewrite PUBLIC "-//tuckey.org//DTD UrlRewrite 4.0//EN" "http://www.tuckey.org/res/dtds/urlrewrite4.0.dtd"> <!-- URL Rewrite files to make issue navigator URL backwards compatible and some other things @since JIRA 3.3 --> <urlrewrite> <!-- Caching of static resources --> <class-rule class="com.atlassian.jira.plugin.webresource.CachingResourceDownloadRewriteRule"/> <!-- @since 5.0 [KickAss]--> <rule> <from>^/issues(\?.*)?$</from> <to type="permanent-redirect">issues/$1</to> </rule> <!-- Umleitung old.domain auf new-domain.org --> <rule> <name> old.domain redirect </name> <condition name="host" operator="notequal">^https://jira.new-domain.org:8443</condition> <from>^/(.*)</from> <to type="permanent-redirect" last="true">https://jira.new-domain.org:8443/$1</to> </rule> </urlrewrite
As far as I understand, every URL not from "https://jira.new-domain.org:8443" should forwarded to it. But it doesn't work. I have also a port forwarding from 8080 to 8443 active. For example when I use "jira.old.domain" it forwards me to "https://jira.old.domain:8443". Is there a correlation between both configurations or what I'm doing wrong? Please help!
