Tutorial :Why can't I get my Azure, WCF, REST, SSL project working? What am I doing wrong?


I'm trying to get SSL, WCF and REST under Azure, but the page won't even load.

Here are the steps I followed:

1) I mapped the www.mydomain.com CNAME to my azuresite.cloudapp.net

2) I procured an SSL certificate for www.mydomain.com and properly installed it at my azuresite.cloudapp.net hosted service project

3) I deployed my WCF REST service to Azure and started it. Below is my web.config configuration.

The http (non-https) binding version worked correctly. My service URL, http: //www.mydomain .com/service.svc/sessions worked just fine.

When I deployed the project with the web.config below, enabling SSL, https: //www.mydomain .com/service.svc/sessions does not even pull up at all.

What am I doing wrong?

<system.serviceModel>      <services>          <service name="Service">                 <!-- non-https worked just fine -->                 <!--                   <endpoint address="" binding="webHttpBinding" contract="IService" behaviorConfiguration="RestFriendly">                  </endpoint>                  -->              <!-- This does not work, what am I doing wrong? -->              <endpoint address="" binding="webHttpBinding" bindingConfiguration="TransportSecurity" contract="IService" behaviorConfiguration="RestFriendly">              </endpoint>          </service>      </services>        <behaviors>          <endpointBehaviors>              <behavior name="RestFriendly">                  <webHttp></webHttp>              </behavior>          </endpointBehaviors>      </behaviors>        <bindings>          <webHttpBinding>              <binding name="TransportSecurity">                  <security mode="Transport">                      <transport clientCredentialType="None"/>                  </security>              </binding>          </webHttpBinding>      </bindings>  </system.serviceModel>  


Did you add the https endpoint to your web role in the ServiceDefinition.csdef file?

It should look something like this:

<WebRole name="WebRole">    <InputEndpoints>      <InputEndpoint name="HttpIn" protocol="http" port="80" />      <InputEndpoint name="HttpsIn" protocol="https" port="443" />    </InputEndpoints>  </WebRole>  

See http://blogs.msdn.com/jnak/archive/2009/05/12/https-endpoint-on-windows-azure.aspx for more info.


You may be missing a service behaviour. Try adding this:

   <serviceBehaviors>       <behavior name="RestService">         <serviceMetadata httpsGetEnabled="true" />         <serviceDebug includeExceptionDetailInFaults="true" />       </behavior>      </serviceBehaviors>   

Then when you define your service:

   <service behaviorConfiguration="RestService" name="WebService.Rest">   


Another thing that could be the problem, is that the request is not reaching your webrole. Have you set up an inputEndpoint for SSL? see http://blogs.msdn.com/b/davethompson/archive/2009/11/24/add-ssl-security-to-your-azure-webrole.aspx
