Thank you page redirects to non-ssl


Level 7

We are accessing and submitting an Adaptive Form from an SSL URL (https).  When it redirects to the Thank you page, it is using a non-SSL url (http).


Is this a configuration issue?


Thank you,

Thanks Mayank.  I guess I needed to mention other details.


I am running AEM 6.5.

I have apache in front of AEM that has the SSL.  Apache to AEM is http.

I do not have a dispatcher.


I reviewed the instructions and tried changing to X-Forwarded-Proto and value - didn't work.

I reviewed the Jetty configuration and Proxy is Enabled.  I toggled anyway but, no luck either.

Is there a configuration on Apache?

I can workaround for now but, this is a problem.  Should I open a ticket?



As you mentioned, the connection from Apache to AEM is http. That's why AEM is using http for internal communication. Have you tried enabling SSL on AEM?

Yes, I can install SSL on AEM - we have done that at the customer.


However, in our dev environments, I do not want to install our certificate - it's a security issue.  We have a centralized Apache server in front of our dev servers.  I guess I could sign a self signed certificate but, it sure seems like this should work. 


What is the purpose of "Proxy server enabled"?



The proxy server acts as an intermediate server that relays requests between a client and a server. The proxy server keeps track of all the client-server interactions and outputs a log of the entire TCP communication. This allows you to monitor exactly what is going on, without having to access the main server.

For more details, please refer to this documentation.

So, this is an AEM proxy server?  I didn't know that existed.


I am using Apache as a proxy using a virtual server.  I still don't have my problem solved and do not wish to install SSL cert on AEM itself.  Oh well . . .
