How To Force Your Jet Web Portal to Resolve Through HTTPS


Overview

Once you've installed the Jet Web Portal and it is operational, you might find that your users are having to type in 'https://' before the DNS (domain name) of your site.  For example, navigating to REPORTS.YOURNAME.COM might resolve in a screen similar to below (varying depending on IIS version).  This is occurring because your browser is navigating to the 'HTTP' address by default as it was not told specifically otherwise.  This article details out a method to force HTTPS resolution for any visits to the corresponding HTTP site.

Process

The first step in this process will require you to add the 'HTTP Redirects' component of IIS, or simply ensure it has been installed.  Please visit the following Microsoft KB article to get this component setup: IIS Configuration Reference: HTTP Redirects

Once that installation has completed, open IIS Manager and click on your 'Default Web Site'.  Locate the 'HTTP Redirect' icon (as shown below) and double-click on it.

Once you've opened up the 'HTTP Redirect' component within IIS, you'll need to input your 'HTTPS' address into the redirect location, as shown below.

Upon making the changes shown above, click on 'Apply' from the right-hand Actions menu.  This is now complete, and your users will be able to navigate to your Jet Web Portal installation without the need to place 'HTTPS://' before the address.
