Login to Sites with HTTPS/SSL traffic causes improper redirects or links to HTTP on WebSphere Application Server (Doc ID 1905777.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 31, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Sites - Version 11.1.1.8.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

When using an IBM WebSphere 7.0.0.31 application server and an Apache web server we have a strange behaviour when attempting to login to WCS Sites. The original URL includes "https" in the request (https://[host]/[sites context]). This URL is redirected by Sites to the CAS login url but the "service" parameter refers "HTTP" only which is wrong because the request was initiated using "HTTPS" protocol:
  https://[host]/[cas context]/login?service=http%3A%2F%2F[host]%2F[sites context]%2Fwem%2Ffatwire%2Fwem%2FWelcome

Where is the configuration associated with this URL redirection ?
