Proxy (NGINX)

If you are running an NGINX proxy (e.g. customizer) then you can pass Boards traffic directly to your Kubernetes deployment.

Please add the following location blocks to your server -> listen 443 blocks:

# Redirect from HCL Connections Activities -> Boards
location ~ ^/activities/service/html/(.*)$ {
  rewrite ^/activities/service/html/(.*)$ /boards/activities/service/html/$1 redirect;

# Boards UI
location /boards {
    proxy_pass http://[KUBERNETES_NAME]:[KUBERNETES_PORT]/boards;

# Boards API (including WebSocket support)
location /api-boards {
    proxy_pass http://[KUBERNETES_NAME]:[KUBERNETES_PORT]/api-boards;
    proxy_http_version 1.1;
    proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
    proxy_set_header Connection "upgrade";
    proxy_set_header Host $host;


  • [KUBERNETES_NAME] is the hostname/IP of the master in your cluster
  • [KUBERNETES_PORT] is the port of your Ingress Controller (ie 32080)

For example:
