For feature requests, please see: http://www.mattermost.org/feature-requests/.
For troubleshooting questions, please post in the following format:
Our installation of Mattermost was partially working, however, without the support of websockets, we are unable to use most of the useful functionalities, such as notifications and other UI features.
Steps to reproduce
Install mattermost behind a Web Application Firewall (WAF).
The following functionalities should be working:
- Able to delete and edit messages
- Able to send reaction emojis
- The system admin able to manage mattermost
The functionalities documented above are not working without websockets. I can confirm it is working if I ssh tunnel to the designated port - then I can use the functionalities above.
I need help in how to disable websockets functionality and fallback to other mechanism?
Or any suggestion on how to enable WAF to support websockets? Unfortunately we have no control over the WAF but according to the vendor, the WAF does not support websockets.
Another idea - is it possible to send websocket requests as https? then change it to wss protocol?
Any advice would be much appreciated.
