How to configure WCF services to work through HTTPS without HTTP binding?
I have configured my WCF services to work with SSL but it works ONLY if the HTTP binding exists in the IIS Web Site. When the HTTP binding not exists and exists only HTTPS binding I get the following error:
The HttpGetEnabled property of ServiceMetadataBehavior is set to true and the HttpGetUrl property is a relative address, but there is no http base address. Either supply an http base address or set HttpGetUrl to an absolute address.
How can I resolve this issue?
Modify your configuration this way:
<behaviors> <serviceBehaviors> <behavior> <!-- behavior can have name (must have name in WCF 3.x) --> <serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="false" httpsGetEnabled="true" /> </behavior> </serviceBehaviors> </behaviors>
you need to use mexHTTPSBinding unstead of mexHTTPBinding
<endpoint address="mex" binding="mexHttpsBinding" contract="IMetadataExchange" />
