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?
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:
Install IIS. Exact steps vary depending on the version of Windows Server, but you should be able to follow the directions at one of the following links
Double click Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager
In IIS Manager find and click on default site
Double click on HTTP Redirect
On the HTTP Redirect configuration screen click the check box for ‘Redirect requests to this destination:'
In the text box enter the root https address for the gallery server (e.g.https://hostname.domain.tld) without the /gallery path at the end. This address should match the hostname/FQDN your certificate was issued for.
