I am using Magento's image helper class to try to get a product's image url in a CLI command: $this->image->init($product, 'product_page_main_image_default')->getUrl().

When I use this code in a block in a frontend page, it returns https://... but when used in a CLI command it instead returns http://.... I was having the same issues with the Magento\Framework\UrlInterface where getting the base url also returned the insecure version. I had to explicitly specific $this->url->getBaseUrl(array('_secure' => true)) to get the secure version.

For the CLI command, I am setting the area code to frontend and I am also emulating the frontend store view $this->emulator->startEnvironmentEmulation(1, \Magento\Framework\App\Area::AREA_FRONTEND, true); My admin has the correct Secure Base Url and Base Link Url in place.

I am wondering if I am doing something wrong or if anyone knowns a fix to get the secure product image url rather than doing a str_replace on the insecure url.

Edit: added relevant code snippet:

Where I am attempting to get secure product image url, using Magento\Catalog\Model\ProductFactory and Magento\Catalog\Helper\Image:

$product = $this->productFactory->create()

$this->image->init($product, 'product_page_main_image_default')->getUrl();

Try this code.

$product = $this->productFactory->create()

$store = $objectManager->get('Magento\Store\Model\StoreManagerInterface')->getStore();
$imageUrl = $store->getBaseUrl(\Magento\Framework\UrlInterface::URL_TYPE_MEDIA) . 'catalog/product' . $product->getImage();
  • Unfortunately this did not work, it still returns an unsecure url
