Ports used by Atlassian Applications

This Knowledge Base article was written specifically for the Atlassian Server platform. Due to the Functional differences in Atlassian Cloud, the contents of this article cannot be applied to Atlassian Cloud applications.

This page lists the ports used by Atlassian Server and Data Center applications.

We'll indicate if the port needs to be accessible through your firewall as follows:

  • open/public - required for external communication.
  • closed/private - only required for internal communication, for example between data center nodes. 

On this page:

Outbound ports

Description Port Description
Outbound traffic 443 Mostly used for communicating with Atlassian Marketplace and sending analytics data (if you've opted in).
SMTP 25 Used for sending email notifications

Customising ports

To find out which ports are in use on your server use the netstat command.  

If one of the default ports listed on this page is already in use, it may be possible to change it. This is usually done in your application's server.xml file, or via a system property. 

See Changing port that your Atlassian application listens on or refer to the documentation for your product.

Tomcat Control Port

Tomcat is the application server that runs most Atlassian products. By default the control port is 8000. 

Although we don't recommend running multiple applications on the same server, if you attempt to do this, you'll need to change the control port in the application's server.xml file, to ensure it is unique for each application. 

Default database ports

You should check the documentation for your particular database or version. 

Database vendor Default port
PostgreSQL 5432
MariaDB 3306
Microsoft SQL Server 1433
MySQL 3306
Oracle 1521

Not all of the databases above are supported for every Atlassian product, so be sure to check the documentation for each product to find out which databases are supported. 

Default SMTP (mail server) ports

Most Atlassian applications will have a mail server configured, for sending notifications. Mail servers are usually configured to use port 25.
