Envoyfilter for outbound https traffic isnt working

I am trying to intercept all outbound http/s traffic from a pod and add a custom header to the request. After reading some documentation I came to the understanding that an envoy filter on SIDECAR_OUTBOUND with some custom lua code would do the trick. So this is the configuration that I did:

apiVersion: networking.istio.io/v1alpha3
kind: EnvoyFilter
metadata:
name: outbound-filter
spec:
configPatches:

  • applyTo: HTTP_FILTER
    match:
    context: SIDECAR_OUTBOUND
    listener:
    filterChain:
    filter:
    name: envoy.http_connection_manager
    subFilter:
    name: envoy.router
    patch:
    operation: INSERT_BEFORE
    value:
    name: envoy.lua
    typed_config:
    @type’: type.googleapis.com/envoy.config.filter.http.lua.v2.Lua
    inlineCode: |
    function envoy_on_request(request_handle)
    request_handle:logWarn(“Hello World”)
    request_handle:headers():add(“origin”, os.getenv(“ISTIO_META_WORKLOAD_NAME”))
    end

And it works perfectly fine for http requests. However, it seems that the filter does not run at all when the request is over https and I don’t understand what is the reason for that. Is there any way to apply the filter for https requests as well?
