Is it possible to set the Server Base URL to support both HTTP and HTTPS?


We are setting up Confluence purely for the Team Calendar add-in as we have a split team across O365 and Google, and it seems impossible to get the native shared team calendars to sync with each other without breaking other things.

I have configured everything to come in via HTTPS which is great, but according to this article ( Google doesn't support HTTPS so users do not see the Add to Google Calendar link. I’m not sure if this then leads to reduced functionality for Google users (i.e. one-way instead of two-way synchronisation), but if it does, is there a way to be able to provide both HTTP and HTTPS access on the base URL?

Currently, the Server Base URL is set to use HTTPS, so although I can view the site using HTTP, as soon as you view a calendar, all you see is a spinning wheel. If the functionality is the same in either case, this I suppose this is a moot point.

To answer my own question, it looks like these subscriptions are only a one-way thing, even in Google. I guess the Add to Google Calendar button is merely a way to ease this for the user. I do have a question regarding two-way synchronisation in O365 (see, but I guess this is not something that could happen. This means that the need for HTTP becomes a littel less relevant.

On another note, it would appear as if the spinning wheel on the calendar is due to the line added to the server.xml for the Nginx Proxy. If I set is as:

proxyName="" proxyPort="443" scheme="https"

All works fine for HTTPS, and if I set it as:

proxyName="" proxyPort="80" scheme="http"

All works fine for HTTP, but I’m not sure if you can have both.
