How to configure HTTPS access to allow URL jira.mycompany.com versus https://jira.mycompany.com:8443?

I would like to simplify the URL our users have to use to access Jira over HTTPS. Is there a way configure the web server to redirect jira.mycompany.com to https://jira.mycompany.com:8443 ? I am assuming requests to Jira only use HTTPS for login?

thanks for any light you can shed on this...;-)

Either use 443 as the https port or do a reversy proxy to 8443 from 443 using Apache or something.

This page should cover what you're looking to do. https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Integrating+JIRA+with+Apache

Yes, you can configure Tomcat to accept from HTTP (80) and HTTPS (443). Then get HTTP to force redirect to HTTPS. Let me know if you need more help in doing this. It's pretty simple. You just need to configure the server.xml.
