Insecure Content Warning in Browser on an SSL Instance
When accessing the dashboard on a JIRA instance displaying an activity stream, the browser may display a warning similar to:
- This page has insecure content
- Mixed content warning
- Only secure content is displayed
The activity stream displays content using the Base URL configured in the JIRA instance. This may cause the browser to flag the page as insecure due to the mixed SSL and non-SSL content. A user can see the mixed URL content when using the developer tools to inspect a page.
In Chrome the dev tools can be accessed by right clicking the page, then
>> Inspect element
- Update the Base URL configuration to use the https url. This setting is is found in
Administration >> System >> General Configuration >> Base URL.
