I have page which requires SSL so the page is https://. I want to fetch this page as google bot inside of google webmasters' diagnostic tools however Google, from what I can tell, only allows http calls. So when I put in my page all I get is a redirect from the http to the https page.

How can I fetch a page as google bot that is https?

This is a good and valid question but I notice you haven't mark your own answer as correct. In my opinion your own answer is the correct one. – Eugene van der Merwe Oct 24 '14 at 13:35

You need to add your domain a second time in the home page with the prefix of https. So your domain will be registered twice, once with http://* and once with https://*. You can then request the page from site with the https prefix.
