REST embedded JSON links do not resolve correctly, resolve to 'localhost'

I’m having a difficult time locating a configuration setting that can correctly set the embedded REST API links returned from calls. We run the Knime server behind an nginx proxy and in all other respects this seems to be happy, e.g. the Knime web portal works correctly, and calls to the KNIME REST API work correctly to https://our.knime.server/knime/rest/mumble.

Example call via the swagger interface…

curl -X GET "https://our.knime.server/knime/rest/v4" -H "accept: application/vnd.mason+json"

happily returns

It’s this ‘localhost:8443’ in the links that is the issue, if I copy that url and substitute the proper host name it’s all happy.

I did mine the various configs and even attempted in /apps/workflow_repo/config/client-profiles/default


# Add a mount point for this server


#/instance/org.knime.workbench.explorer.view/mountpointNode/KNIME-Server/restPath=https://our.knime.server/knime/rest

But that only caused errors across the entire API…how do I get the REST api to return proper links?
