HTTP-Post data with Tomcat

I'm using Nginx as proxy for a Tomcat 7. My configuration shows:

upstream tomcat {
    server fail_timeout=0;

location /jenkins
        proxy_set_header        Host $http_host;
        proxy_set_header        X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
        proxy_set_header        X-Forwarded-Proto https;
        proxy_set_header        X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;

	proxy_pass              https://tomcat;

I'm using Jenkins and some other war files.
Some of the container can store some binary files, so the container has got an upload form
which uses HTTP Post data. 

I cannot update with this configuration any data, on a native connect to Tomcat everything
works fine, so imho the proxy configuration of Nginx seems to create some problems.
How can I modify my configuration that HTTP post data is passed from Nginx to Tomcat
for uploading binary files?
