We have changed serveral websites to https. All users will be redirected via 301, all urls on our site was changed to https, too. First problem is, that Matomo's visitor log still shows "http" urls, which cant be possible, because the users will be redirected.

It seems this problem is an old one, someone posted it on the forum, too:
https://forum.matomo.org/t/tracking-von-https-in-url-wird-nur-http-angezeigt/22990 (german post)

The second problem is, that we are currently not 100% sure, when we use the "URLs" configuration for websites, that "https" will be also consididerd like the "non-www"/"www", when we have just used "http://www.example.org". There are some missing informations about this. This need to be clarified more.

Hi @ryrun
Thanks for the feedback.

-> can you please set only the HTTPS URLs in your website (in Admin > websites > Manage > edit). Then are the URLs displayed in the visitor log shown for HTTPS links only?

I can't remember exactly the logic but if your website URLs are defined as HTTPS in Matomo, and your users are viewing https page, then for sure it's expected we show HTTPS links in the visitor log.
-> Could you please confirm if it's working for you in Matomo 3.6.0 or not?

The second problem is, that we are currently not 100% sure, when we use the "URLs" configuration for websites, that "https" will be also consididerd like the "non-www"/"www", when we have just used "http://www.example.org".

Sounds good, we will clarify this in the UI.

Proposed steps to solve the issue

  • Confirm whether linking to HTTPS is partially not working as expected
  • Improve the inline help for definining website URLs and clarify that HTTPS and HTTP don't need to be specified like you don't need to specify with and without www.
