It seems like I can't access any Lists on https sites, I get the status -> error everytime I try. Tried GetList and GetListItems operations in my Javascript function, which works fine on any site I tested it - as I just have to change my "SITE_URL" parameter. The webURL and listName are given.

So I came to ask: Is SPServices working different on https?

EDIT: Someone coming across this question looking for similar issues may find this topic about CORS, different farms and HTTP / HTTPS useful: Link

From my experience, no. I've used it in both http and https environments without issues.

Note that accessing data cross-protocols will breach Same Origin Policy.

You can get around this by using a relative URL, or just start a full path URL with // instead of specifying protocol.

  • The CORS subject led me to another answer, thanks for the point.
