How can I securely send an HTTP request? (Use HTTPS for example)

If I want to use Flow in a business related situation, I will have to be able to send business related messages. It would nice for this information to be secured. I currently upload files to my server like this:

This issue with this approach is that an HTTP request is interceptable. I do not see an action for sending an HTTPS request, as opposed to an HTTP one. Is there a trick I can use to send an HTTPS?

Re: How can I securely send an HTTP request? (Use HTTPS for example)

Hi @AsgeirAlbretsen ,

 

From this thread we know that “HTTPs works for the HTTP action card, but it may require that the HTTPs endpoint is serving an SSL cert that matches the hostname”.

 

I have seen another blog on HTTP actions in Microsoft Flow, which could be a reference for you as well:

Please take a try with it on your side.

 

Best regards,

Hi @v-yamao-msft 

 

The threads you linked were very helpful! I was prepairing for a god awful amount of work, but sending HTTPS requests in the HTTP module worked like a charm! 

 

Maybe consider changing the name to HTTP/HTTPS so future networking noobies like me aren't confused 🙂 !
