Is there anything special I have to do in order to make JQuery .ajax work with a WCF Rest service over SSL (or is there something I need to do with the WCF to allow it to work over SSL)?

Everything works fine when it's over http but when I enable https it stops working.

here's an article that might point you in the right direction, but its hard to tell without knowing more about the actual call you are making and the actual errors you are getting.
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1478680/why-does-wcf-web-service-hosted-in-iis-over-ssl-result-in-403-forbidden-jquer
what error are you getting in the browser?
is the reuest actually making it to the server?
what does the jquery code that makes the call look like?
what does the service configuration look like?

protocols and domain used in url of the client and the server (address used by the ajax call) must match.

the page doing the call need to use ssl and the address of the service too.

The service is on the same site in a sub directory so everything is under SSL. I'm using a relative path from the jquery call. The data going back and forth is Json data.

IHI:
[OperationContract(Name = "GetQuote")]
        [ServiceKnownType(typeof(HIQuoteObject))]
        [WebInvoke(UriTemplate = "/GetQuote", ResponseFormat = WebMessageFormat.Json,
                                           RequestFormat = WebMessageFormat.Json,
                                           BodyStyle = WebMessageBodyStyle.Bare,
                                           Method = "POST")]
        HIResultObject GetHIQuote(HIQuoteObject hi);

Open in new window


$.ajax({
        type: "POST",
        url: "API/HI.svc/GetQuote",
        data: tempJ,
        contentType: "application/json",
        success: function (data, textStatus, XMLHttpRequest) {

            //DO a bunch of stuff
        },
        error: function (xhr, status, error) {
           
            
            var tempText = "";
            for (prop in xhr) {
            tempText = tempText + xhr[prop];
            }
            alert("error:" + tempText);        }
    });

The Ultimate Checklist to Optimize Your Website

ok, I've been able to narrow it down to the web.config and, after changing some settings, it works now. However...is there a way to get it to seamlessly work between my non-https test environment and the live https server without having to go in and comment stuff out in the config before I publish?

New Web.Config code:
<system.serviceModel>
    <serviceHostingEnvironment aspNetCompatibilityEnabled="false"
      multipleSiteBindingsEnabled="true" />
    
    <services>
      <service name="Enroll2011.API.CensusSearch">
        <endpoint address="" bindingConfiguration="httpsBinding" behaviorConfiguration="SearchServiceBehavior"
                  binding="webHttpBinding" contract="Enroll2011.API.ICensusSearch" />
        
      </service>
      <service name="Enroll2011.API.enroll">
        <endpoint address="" bindingConfiguration="httpsBinding"  behaviorConfiguration="EnrollServiceBehavior"
                  binding="webHttpBinding" contract="Enroll2011.API.Ienroll" />
      </service>
      <service name="Enroll2011.API.HI">
        <endpoint address="" bindingConfiguration="httpsBinding" behaviorConfiguration="HIServiceBehavior"
                  binding="webHttpBinding" contract="Enroll2011.API.IHI" />
      </service>
      <service name="Enroll2011.API.DIS">
        <endpoint address="" bindingConfiguration="httpsBinding" behaviorConfiguration="DISServiceBehavior"
                  binding="webHttpBinding" contract="Enroll2011.API.IDIS" />
      </service>
    </services>

    <behaviors>
      <endpointBehaviors>
        <behavior name="SearchServiceBehavior">

        </binding>

Not that I'm aware of - we generally put environment specific configuration information in its own file and include it in the web config - we only deploy the "correct" one to each environment using deployment scripts that are environment aware.

One thing that we did was exposed 2 endpoints, one for http and one for https. No need to change web config that way.
