nginx config is based on "one request is handled in one location";
but one http request is not necessarily just one nginx request.

I suspect that if you put the configuration that you want, in the location
that you want, things will Just Work. Trying to have one location both
require and not require a password, is probably the root of the issue.

(You will want to disable "deny all" or "satisfy any" here too.)

Instead of that try_files, can you just "proxy_pass" directly?

Either copy-paste the config ending with

proxy_pass http://127.0.0.1:8080;

or do "include the-proxy-pass-file;"?

Same there, but that one is not directly influenced by the "satisfy
any" thing.

Good luck with it,
