We just installed SSL in our azure website to convert it to HTTPS.

Now we want that any request coming in as HTTP should be changed/redirected to HTTPS connection.

How can I do this?

I tried this and it did not work on my server. So I used the simplest rule to test.
Even that did not work.

  </system.webServer>

        <rewrite>
            <rules>
                <rule name="Redirect to HTTPS">
                       <match url="*.*" />
                        <action type="Redirect" url="http://www.google.com"  />
                </rule>
            </rules>
        </rewrite>
  </system.webServer>

Open in new window


Any ideas?

I ended up using this code:

  <system.webServer>
	<rewrite>
		<rules>		
			<rule name="HTTP to HTTPS redirect" stopProcessing="true">
				<match url="(.*)" />
					<conditions>
                        <add input="{HTTPS}" pattern="Off" />
						<add input="{REQUEST_METHOD}" pattern="^get$|^head$" />
					</conditions>
					<action type="Redirect" url="https://{HTTP_HOST}/{R:1}" redirectType="SeeOther" />
			</rule>			
		</rules>
	</rewrite>
  </system.webServer>

Open in new window



But now when the website is redirected from HTTP to HTTPS then,

if website was:

http://1.2.3.4/Website1/Pages/Page1.aspx

it switches to

https://1.2.3.4/Pages/Page1.aspx


"Website1" is missing !!!!!


Any ideas .........

I used this

<action type="Redirect" url="https://{HTTP_HOST}{REQUEST_URI}" redirectType="SeeOther" />
