I could help you to develop anything and solve complex problems based on technologies, integrations and tricky stuffs mostly in Python with OpenERP/Odoo, Zato, Django and many others frameworks programming languages and technologies.

I offers consulting services to anyone with an unanswered questions or needs for customizations. Think about it, maybe it's better to have an expert to solve your issues and projects than having a full-time employee trying to understand what to do and how

When deploying Odoo behind a reverse proxy there are some headers that you need to pass to your Odoo instance from the reverse proxy itself. This works for me on nginx:

        proxy_set_header Host $host;
proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
proxy_set_header X-Forward-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
# Let the OpenERP web service know that we're using HTTPS, otherwise
# it will generate URL using http:// and not https://
proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto https;
# by default, do not forward anything
proxy_redirect http:// https://;

This settings on nginx location made Odoo behave ok behind a reverse proxy, in your case the last two are very important, find what nginx is doing with those settings and replicate to Amazon ELB

According to Amazon's documentation:


They do send the X-Forwarded-For, and X-Forwarded-Proto headers through.

Host should be passed through with the request automatically, and I'm not sure what X-Real-IP does.

I think the part that works for you, but I can't get to work for me because AWS ELB doesn't support it is the redirect of http to https. There are only a few places that don't support the automatic changing of the URL.. such as logging out, and the mass mailing campaign email editor.

I would think that these should be updated so that they work regardless of what type of load balancer the system is behind.

Alternatively I could setup an nginx docker image to simply redirect http to https, but this seems like a workaround and not a very good use of resources.

Does anyone else have any additional thoughts?

Stuck on this as well. Did you manage to set up Nginx behind ELB?
