I have created an Azure CDN endpoint (like example.azureedge.net) using Verizon Premium Pricing Tier.

I want to create a rule to redirect to the HTTPS protocol (like https://example.azureedge.net) whenever a user uses the HTTP protocol (like http://example.azureedge.net).

How can I achieve this using the rules engine of Azure CDN from Verizon Premium?

The Medium article that Steve linked seems to have the answer. To quote the main steps:

  1. From the Azure Portal, Select the CDN profile

  2. Click on Manage to open the configuration page

  3. From the HTTP Large menu, select Rules Engine

  4. Update the Name / Description i.e. HTTP to HTTPS redirect

  5. Change the Always dropdown menu to Request Scheme

  6. Click the Features+ button and select URL Redirect

  7. Within the pattern text field enter (.*)

  8. In the Destination text field enter https://%{host}/$1

  9. Click Add

  • Hi Maximillian, the Verizon configuration page's rule does not contain a pattern text field but includes a source field. Also, the code dropdown does not have 308 code. Can you please explain what value should I enter in the source field and how can I set redirect code to 308

  • @Yash This may be about as much as I am able to personally help, given my lack of knowledge of this specific tool. On another note, is there a particular reason you specifically need a 308 status code, or would a 301 status code be close enough? Finally, here is another article that seems like it may be helpful: camerondwyer.com/2021/02/09/… Commented Sep 11, 2021 at 6:34
