  • 1.  Adminconsoleapp behind NGINX reverse proxy

    Posted 6 days ago
    Hello,
    Does any of you has been able to use a NGINX Reverse proxy in front of the operator console and the adminconsoleapp?

    I can load the page of the adminconsoleapp but the authentication does not work. It gives me a 404 for the /j_security_check URI.

    Our goal is to let nginx handle the SSL certificate and proxy everything to the http://server/adminconsoleapp page

    Thanks

    SSL offload such as you are doing will work fine for admin console.  For basic operator console it will work as well BUT (and this is the real problem) jaspersoft (ie CABI) does not support SSL offload, so in the CABI documentation it specifically says that if you have SSL from the client then you need to have SSL enabled on the CABI wasp (and you need to update the cabi_url key in the wasp configuration as well). once you have SSL for the cabi wasp you need SSL for the OC wasp.

    We tried to "trick" Jaspersoft/CABI with rewites but were never able to get it to work well (it also changed every time we applied a CABI related patch as well) so in the end we have SSL infront of the reverse proxy as well as behind it, which has worked well for the last year or so of patches and changes.
