AWS App Runner now redirects incoming HTTP based requests to an App Runner service endpoint to HTTPS. Until now, incoming requests to an HTTP endpoint failed with timeout status response. Now, you can use both HTTP and HTTPS endpoints from your client to access your application running on App Runner. App Runner will redirect the incoming request to an HTTPS endpoint with 301 “Moved Permanently” status code. You do not need to make any configuration change to your App Runner service to enable HTTP to HTTPS redirect.

App Runner makes it easier for developers to quickly deploy containerized web applications and APIs to the cloud, at scale, and without managing infrastructure. By default, App Runner supports HTTPS endpoints. With App Runner, you do not need to configure TLS cipher suites or any other parameters. App Runner manages the TLS termination for you.
