WebSudo Login Issues With HAProxy
Platform Notice: Server and Data Center Only - This article only applies to Atlassian products on the server and data center platforms.
Accessing Admin-related functions require a websudo authentication. With HAProxy in front of Confluence (as a load balancer for the Data Center), this becomes a problem if HAProxy is not configured correctly
- This applies only to HAProxy configurations with Confluence
Indirect flag in the cookie configuration in HAProxy, example:
backend confluence_app option httplog option forwardfor option http-server-close option httpchk mode http balance roundrobin cookie JSESSIONID prefix indirect nocache
Note: it is highly recommended not to use "indirect" with "prefix", otherwise server cookie updates would not be sent to clients
Remove the indirect flag in the cookie configuration in HAProxy, followed by a restart
