Hi

I am trying to work out how I can remove authentication header from apache which is working as a frontend for Atlassian Jira or Confluence?

With mod_proxy it is possible to do by using
Code:
RequestHeader unset Authorization
configuration directive.

I am not sure what will be the same for mod_jk module.

The reason that I am trying to do this is that Apache Load Balancer for Jira DC edition does not have any restrictions on it and Jira is using SSO to authenticate users.

But in order during the trouble with individual hosts I will need to be able to get to them directly and these special access ports I am protecting with Basic Auth with specific user access.

But from another point of I don't need to pass Basic Auth details to the underlying application and I would like to remove it.

Currently whichever I have tried didn't help.
Tomcat is always getting logged in user details and doing wrong stuff....

Apache 2.4
Linux RedHat Enterprise 7.2
Module mod_jk from Apache 1.2.41
https://tomcat.apache.org/download-connectors.cgi

Any help appreciated.

Regards,
Areg

Hi

Not sure why but the option was not working in first place and now it is working.

Code:
RequestHeader unset Authorization


May be forgot the HTTPD restart?
