Private Server With SSL Redirect

Highlighted
11 - Bolide

With the native SSL option enabled in the Alteryx server settings, users have to explicity specify HTTPS://url.com. Any users who attempt to visit the gallery by navigating to http://url.com or more commonly just url.com see a 404 as Alteryx's built in webserver doesn't appear to perform any redirection when SSL is enabled. 

 

Without setting up an upstream load-balancer or other webserver, does anyone have a good solution for redirecting users to the https url when they navigate to a private gallery with SSL enabled?

 

Best regards,

Ryan

Thank you for working with me regarding this issue. As per our email discussion there isn’t a way to do the redirect internally without additional Gallery servers. However, you should be able to use IIS on the same server as your Gallery to do redirection to https. I did some testing and was able to set this up pretty easily with IIS 7.5. You can follow the steps below to set this up:

Thank you for this solution, @KevinP! It fills the need without having to stand up additional hardware / VMs to get the SSL redirect. 

 

Best regards,

I wish this was an option from within the Alteryx Server System Setting (and by default turned on).
