Issue with redirect to HTTP on 'Sign in' in Studio

I deploy Tutor (olive.1) in Kubernetes. I build the project with HTTPS enabled globally (The argument “ENABLE_HTTPS: true” is defined in the global configuration file ~/.local/share/tutor/config.yml). In general I’ve no issues with using HTTPS in the project except authentication in Studio.
For example if I go to the studio url “” and click on the “Sign in” button it sends me to the url “”. As you can see it redirects me to HTTP instead of HTTPS in the “next=”.
Can you please help me to fix this problem? I tried to rebuild the project again with “ENABLE_HTTPS: true”. I checked there’re no references to “http://” in the ~/.local/share/tutor/env/apps/openedx/settings/cms/, ~/.local/share/tutor/env/apps/openedx/settings/lms/ files.

[Update] Please see the below alternative solution

Unrecommend solution I had encountred same issue to resolve, I just went to admin setting the changs the redirct url of cms-sso.
  1. got to
  2. choose cms-sso from the list
  3. change Redirect uris scheme from https to http
  4. save, and try to login from studio again.

My vauge understanding of why this is happening:
It that when you are try to access to studio, django would still thinks your using http when it gets requst.path which is used probably to create session/token. So it sets redirect-url/next with http though tutor when created the django-dot-application used https.

Alternative and better solution:

Make sure your proxy server set these header, in my the case I use, nginx and the following were essetinals

      proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
      proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto https;

  • Set the following headers appropriately: X-Forwarded-Proto, X-Forwarded-Port.
