CloudBeaver and Nginx

Configuring CloudBeaver with Nginx

By default CloudBeaver listens to plain http protocol, processes all static content via the Jetty server and is not load balanced.
All these issues can be resolved by putting a real web server in front of CloudBeaver.
We can use Nginx as the most popular web server.

Installing Nginx

sudo apt update
sudo apt install nginx

Add proxy config

Open the Nginx configuration in your favorite text editor.
The default Nginx config file is /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/default.

  location / {
    proxy_pass       http://localhost:8978;
    proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
    proxy_set_header Host $http_host;
    proxy_http_version 1.1;
    proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
    proxy_set_header Connection "upgrade";

To identify the information (real IP address) of client connected to the web server through NGINX, add the parameter forwardProxy:true into your server configuration.
