Atlassian connect app issue

In my atlassian-connect I have specified the authentication to:

  "authentication": {
    "type": "none"

However, when trying to install my app, I get the following error:

Installation failed. The app requested authentication but did not specify a secure base URL (beginning with https://) in its descriptor.

How I can solve this issue?

Regardless of authentication, you need TLS / https.

What do you mean? Could you please give an example? Thanks

The error message indicates that you must serve your app over https. If you don’t use https, the app won’t install.

Just to elaborate on @marc’s answer, you cannot use a URL like It must be an HTTPS URL, like For full details about Atlassian’s requirements on App hosting, see security requirements. Even if you are using one of the Atlassian Connect frameworks, TLS termination might be handled somewhere else in the infrastructure; hence, you may need to know these details.
