What do you mean by "alias"? Your base url should be set to where you intend to access the Atlassian product (you haven't said which one). As I understand aliasing, you don't need it because you only have one url to work with. Obviously, as an ssl connection, it'll be https://..... but I don't understand what else you might mean?

I have been requested to make the url more simple. Now it is https://company-confluence:8443. I know this is pretty simple already but, wanted to know if it could have an alias (different url) such as documents:8443 or do I have to change the host name and create a new ssl key. I do have a redirect from http://company-confluence:8090.

You need to decide on one, single, fixed url and use that for the base url and the certificate. Redirecting from other urls is fine, as that just puts the user in the right place. Trying to have more than one url will not work properly because the users will always end up at the base url as a result of something they click somewhere.

You should be able to place a page on your "somewhere simple" that simply contains a bit of javascript or html "redirect", or yes, pick it up in Apache and shove them over to the base url

Ok, I just want the one original URL. I would like to redirect users to this if they enter something simple. Can that be added somewhere or is it a apache item. I did find this online.
