reverse SSL proxy for jetty

I'm trying to use nginx as a reverse-proxy in front of a jetty (running artifactory[^1]). 

HTTPS -> NGINX -> HTTP -> Jetty 

In plain HTTP it works like a charm, but HTTPS fails. Jetty doesn't recognizes the $scheme. I tried 

        add_header              Front-End-Https on;
        proxy_set_header        X-Forwarded-Proto https;

Jetty or Artifactory ignores the protocol and some links are calculated as http://   others as relative links (which works). For Jetty it should work as stated here[^2] . 

May be there is something magic I can't see? 
Can you share your config  

Thanks for your help
