SSL and ArcGIS Server - Time For HTTPS is Now

Posted by Jason Harris on May 5, 2016 10:53:50 AM

We all knew it was coming and now it's here.  The #1 desktop browser, Google Chrome has recently updated several of their API's that affect us GIS developers - most notably for us, GeoLocation.  The short take away here is, in order to take advantage of in-browser geolocation (you know, that home/crosshairs button), you need to use HTTPS when serving your webs and map services.  Adding SSL to your ArcGIS Server site is pretty straightforward as is adding SSL to the webserver of your choice.  The bigger issue (pain) is going through all your code and making sure that everything is being served via HTTPS.  You know, all the javascript libraries, google apis, jquery, etc - they all need to be called via HTTPS or you'll get a 'Mixed Content' error that will block regular HTTP calls.
