IIS - Redirect website to https

The redirect from http to https in IIS can be accomplished with the following code added in the web.config file of the website:

      <rewrite>
            <rules>
                <rule name="Https forced" stopProcessing="true">
                    <match url="(.*)" />
                    <conditions>
                        <add input="{HTTPS}" pattern="^OFF$" />
                    </conditions>
                    <action type="Redirect" url="https://{HTTP_HOST}/{R:1}" redirectType="SeeOther" />
                </rule>
            </rules>
        </rewrite>

This code should be added in the <system.webServer> section in the web.config file. For example:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<configuration>
    <system.webServer>
          <rewrite>
            <rules>
                <rule name="Https forced" stopProcessing="true">
                    <match url="(.*)" />
                    <conditions>
                        <add input="{HTTPS}" pattern="^OFF$" />
                    </conditions>
                    <action type="Redirect" url="https://{HTTP_HOST}/{R:1}" redirectType="SeeOther" />
                </rule>
            </rules>
        </rewrite>
        <directoryBrowse enabled="false" />
        <defaultDocument>
            <files>
                <clear />
                <add value="Default.htm" />
                <add value="Default.asp" />
                <add value="index.htm" />
                <add value="index.html" />
                <add value="Index.php" />
                <add value="Default.aspx" />
            </files>
        </defaultDocument>
    </system.webServer>
</configuration>
