Securing Admin UI with SSL in EPiServer 7


Hi, what is the path to walk to get (read force) admin UI secured with SSL without having to create second application to IIS for that? Documentation ( was not from my point of view clear in this, and example actually looks to be from CMS 6, where the UI mapping was a bit more simple than in CMS 7.

we use the iis 7 urlrewrite module to achive this.

<rule name="ForceCMSInHTTPS" stopProcessing="true" enabled="true">
    <match url="(manage|util)$(/)?.*" ignoreCase="true" />
      <add input="{HTTPS}" pattern="off" ignoreCase="true" />
    <action type="Redirect" redirectType="Found" url="https://{HTTP_HOST}/{R:0}" appendQueryString="true"  />

Thanks, sounds like a good approach!

EDIT: Probably the matching rule was ment to be "(manage|util)($|/)?.*"
