When try to create an Application Links to JIRA, a timed out error message shows up in background and saw this Javascript error message in the browser console:

Mixed content: The page at 'https://stash-url' was loaded over HTTPS, but requested an insecure XMLHttpRequest endpoint 'http://stash-url'. This request has been blocked; the content must be served over HTTPS.



  • Nginx running on JIRA and Stash.


ProxyName, ProxyPort and scheme parameters is not configured in the Stash server.xml file or the parameters are configured in the wrong directory due to the Stash latest changes:

Stash 3.7 and earlier<Stash installation directory>/conf/server.xml
Stash 3.8 and later<Stash home directory>/shared/server.xml

Add 'ProxyName', 'ProxyPort' and 'scheme' parameters in the Stash server.xml. For more details information, please refer Securing Stash behind nginx using SSL article.
