Using ServletUriComponentsBuilder with Nginx

Spring’s ServletUriComponentsBuilder.fromCurrentRequest() can be really convinient to build an URL from the current request. However, when using Nginx, things might work so well.

The solution is simple, just add these headers to your Nginx configuration file:

proxy_set_header        X-Forwarded-Host   $host:443;
proxy_set_header        X-Forwarded-Server $host;
proxy_set_header        X-Forwarded-Port   443;
proxy_set_header        X-Forwarded-Proto  https;
