change property to https in GA

I've noticed when I use the Fetch as Google tool, my website is listed as http and not https (see below). Does anybody know how I change this? I've already changed it under Property Settings.

Thank you!

Hi :-)

For help with Google Search Console questions and issues, best place to ask is the Google Webmaster Central Forum

https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!forum/webmasters


Off the top of my head though.. 
If your website is https then usually in Google Search Console you would claim and verify GSC site ownership for
http://www.domain.com and http://domain.com   
as well as https://www.domain.com and https://domain.com

You then need to ensure a 301 redirect is correctly put in place so as to redirect the http domains and the https non preferred version of the domain to the https preferred version of the domain name.

 

atm the 301 redirect is not setup correctly as http://trentstudios.com does not redirect to https://trentstudios.com as expected.

Once that is all sorted out and analytics Property and all Views have been edited to reflect the correct domain name, this one is then linked to the preferred version of the domain in GSC
