You say that authentication fails, but the only nginx logs you show all
show http 200.

And for "direct" access that works, you show logs with lots of
(java?) error messages

Can you show the actual login request? It looks like it should be a POST
to /wfc/portal including a username= and a password= in the POST request
body content.

Presumably that is a request that gives a "success" indication when
made directly, and a "failure" when made through nginx. A comparison of
the response bodies, and maybe the back-end server logs, will probably
be instructive.

That comes from the following (lines removed):

> <form style="display:inline;" target="_top" onsubmit="setlogin(); return false;" action="/wfc/portal" id="LogonForm" method="POST" name="logonForm" autocomplete="off" >
