Hi All, i'm trying to configure a auth based static files server using
nginx, but its not working because, i suppose, the $request_uri is not being
forwarded to the auth endpoint. Does auth_request support relaying
$request_uri ? If someone could give a tip i would be very grateful.

server {
        listen 443 ssl;
        listen [::]:443 ssl;

        ssl_certificate ....;
        ssl_certificate_key ....;

        root /path/to/static/html;
        index index.html index.htm index.nginx-debian.html;

        server_name ...;

        location / {
                auth_request     /validate;
                auth_request_set $auth_status $upstream_status;
                try_files $uri $uri/ =404;

        location /validate {

            proxy_ssl_certificate     ...;
            proxy_ssl_certificate_key ...;

            proxy_pass_request_headers on;

            proxy_http_version 1.1;
            proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
            proxy_set_header Connection 'upgrade';
            proxy_set_header Host $host;
            proxy_cache_bypass $http_upgrade;
            proxy_set_header X-Original-URI $request_uri;


 Thanks in advance.
