HTTP integration is not set-up for reverse proxies?


I get a lot (dozens) of these warnings in my HA Logs:

A request from a reverse proxy was received from, but your HTTP integration is not set-up for reverse proxies; This request will be blocked in Home Assistant 2021.7 unless you configure your HTTP integration to allow this header

It seems to me that is new since the last update (2021.6.1) but I am not sure. Anyway I am not able to understand what they mean. I am using an Intel NUC installation with NGINX Home Assistant SSL proxy add-on configured this way:

(mydomain : of course, I configured my real domain name here)

I have also the Mosquitto broker add-on, the Zigbee2mqtt add-on and the Let’s Encrypt add-on. All is running fine, both from internal and external access… except these (news ?) warnings above.

NB. I set up the NGINX Home Assistant SSL proxy add-on in order to allow to Nuki bridge to do webhooks without to break my external https access since this bridge uses only http.

Any idea about these warnings and what I can do to remove them ?

You can read the release notes.

Click the HTTP header to expand the note you need.

Thanks for the help (next time I will check more deeply the release notes !).

I am not very aware about network configuration but I suppose I have to configure something as:

  - use_x_forwarded_for: true
  - trusted_proxies: <the IP of Nginx add-on>

How can I check the IP of Nginx ? Is the from the warnings ?

Lose the - from the two entries and yes, that IP should work. As per comments in this topic, you may want to add and ::1 as well if your reverse proxy is on the same machine:

  use_x_forwarded_for: true
    - ::1

Problem solved, thanks you !
