I'm facing issues with images on our Next.js headless application. My problem is that I always get an image error about a pipeline processor. But only when I go relative over the rendering instance URL. The error itself is obviously a .Net one. But when I call the relative URL directly on CM or CD it works fine! So I guess the rewriting/forwarding is corrupted somehow?! What misconfiguration could that be?

The problem is that by default in the docker example the Sitecore.LoadBalancing.Enabled setting is set to true which gets the schema for this SPEAK processor from the HttpContext.Current.Request.Headers[Settings.LoadBalancingScheme] and for some reason it contains http,https value which is not a valid HTTP schema. To do a quick and dirty fix you can apply the following patch:

<configuration xmlns:patch="http://www.sitecore.net/xmlconfig/" xmlns:role="http://www.sitecore.net/xmlconfig/role/">
                <!-- FIX: fix if "http,https" is in the Settings.LoadBalancingScheme header -->
                <processor patch:before="processor[@type='Sitecore.Pipelines.HttpRequest.OverrideDialogs, Sitecore.Speak.Applications']" type="Feature.Pipelines.LoadBalancingSchemeFix, Feature" role:require="Standalone or ContentManagement or ContentDelivery" />
using Sitecore.Configuration;
using Sitecore.Pipelines.PreprocessRequest;
using System.Web;

namespace Feature.Pipelines
    public class LoadBalancingSchemeFix : PreprocessRequestProcessor
        public override void Process(PreprocessRequestArgs args)
            var scheme = HttpContext.Current?.Request?.Headers?[Settings.LoadBalancingScheme];
            if (Settings.LoadBalancingEnabled && (scheme?.Contains(",") ?? false))
                HttpContext.Current.Request.Headers[Settings.LoadBalancingScheme] = scheme.Split(',')[0];

Although this fix works, a Sitecore Support tickets needs to be raised. Once you get the Sitecore patch ID please post it 😊

I submitted this issue to Sitecore. They've opened a feature request to support for multiple protocols in load balancing scheme header. In the meantime, they recommend using the accepted answer above (which worked for me also).

To track the future status of this bug report, please use reference number 529007. More information about public reference numbers can be found here: https://support.sitecore.com/kb?id=kb_article_view&sysparm_article=KB0853187
