Bug report #6898

QGIS mapserver forces http when requesting SLD=https

Added by Marco Lechner about 11 years ago. Updated over 5 years ago.

Assignee:René-Luc ReLuc
Category:QGIS Server
Affected QGIS version:2.18.22 Regression?:No
Operating System:Linux Easy fix?:No
Pull Request or Patch supplied:Yes Resolution:fixed/implemented
Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:No Copied to github as #:16023


When trying to use SLD with QGIS mapserver including SLD in GetMap requests qgis-mapserver tries to fetch the SLD-file using only http. Having SLD=https:///www.foo.de/mysld.xml is taken as http:///www.foo.de/mysld.xml - if sld-files are only available via https qgis mapserver can not fetch them. A "premature end of script" error is thrown.

As another side-effect using SLD=https:///www.foo.de:443/mysld.xml with results in a 400 bad request error, because qgis mapserver tries to ftech http:///www.foo.de:443/...

Solution: qgis mapserver should respect https (well, how to handle self-signed certificates then?)
