In order to generate full path of images(URL) on views for rest endpoint on my decoupled Drupal project I'm using Image Url Formatter module, everything works correctly until I decide to put the website on HTTPS, In console I see
Loading mixed (insecure) display content “http://core.domain.com/sites/default/files/styles/874x492/public/gallery/2017-01/1-907331.JPG?itok=MKfQSWFh” on a secure page

it's because this formatter return HTTP Instead HTTPS for image URLs.

In the situation like this that the websites should work on HTTPS and HTTP both, I advise my team using //domain.com instead of http://domain.com or https://domain.com in all endpoint URLS

Now I looking for a solution to return all images URL from http://.... to //... . if I had few views I could benefit REWRITE feature of view but I have a lot of views rest export endpoint.

What is your solution for this requirement?

Doing a quick test, works fine with HTTPS

Views REST Json

All of the above is using FULL URL

Perhaps someone set it to Absolute file path, which will give you /path/image.jpg (with out the $base_url). Then in some template file they did http://example.com{{ field.image.content }}


using template_preprocess_image_formatter() is another solution to change the template formatter of the image.

  • as I mentioned in the question I know I can do this for each view one by one, but there are several view and I looked for a global solution,

  • @zhilevan and what I am saying is that it should've worked had your people set things up properly. Why do you have a lot of views? Are you not using Contextual Filters?

  • I think create working with template_preprocess_image_formatter() is better solution and there, replace all http:// with //
