Configure Odoo 8 to generate correct URLs when behind reverse proxy?

I’m trying to set up Odoo 8 behind Nginx reverse proxy, where SSL termination is done on Nginx. The problem is that Odoo keeps setting the wrong protocol (http) when generating the URL for redirect_uri parameter for OAuth2 Google authentication.

I have the following HTTP headers set for proxy_pass:

proxy_set_header Host $host;

proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;

proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Host $http_host;

proxy_set_header X-Forward-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;

proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto https;

proxy_set_header Front-End-Https On;

It seems Odoo doesn't care about these headers except for Host. Is there some other header I should set?

I also tried setting Odoo system parameters: web.base.url, but that has no effect either.

How can I force Odoo to use https when assembling URLs? Please help!

Thank you so much for mention "proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Host $http_host;". I missed this in my configuration. But now it works too. Thank you very much. Was trying to find the error since 2 days...

Problem solved. I was missing --proxy-mode option, or alternatively proxy_mode = True in openerp-server.conf. Without this option Odoo ignores X-Forwarded-... headers.
