However, URL links to a Bamboo instance that are provided in Bamboo email notifications and by some Bamboo plugins, will use the base URL set on this 'General Configuration' page. Hence, if you configure the Base URL field above to one that can only be accessed internally, behind a firewall, then you may have problems accessing this Bamboo instance externally.
