I was able to get Jenkins UI to use SSL and I have it currently going to HTTPS and port 8443, however when you go to click on the log in in the upper right corner of the UI to get into the admin of Jenkins it defaults the connection back to port 8080. My question is since we want to use port 8443 how do we stop this part (the log in to admin) from using the port 8080 and use 8443 as we use to get access to the UI. Is there some way to tell the system the port it needs to use for this connection thru log in? What I see is when I look at the link when you right click the log in icon is this :
but it takes me to another screen that says:
The information you’re about to submit is not secure
Because this form is being submitted using a connection that’s not secure, your information will be visible to others.
and then says continue or back if you right click the continue this is the link now:
Why did it switch to 8080 from 8443? How do we have it connect using 8443? Do we need another certificate for the log in part as well?
