<rule name="HTTP to HTTPS" stopProcessing="true">
  <match url="(.*)" ignoreCase="false" />
  <conditions>
    <add input="{HTTPS}" pattern="off" />
    <condition scope="serverVariable" index="SERVER_NAME" test="matchRegex" value="localhost|127\.0\.0\.1|::1" negate="true" />
  </conditions>
  <action type="Redirect" url="https://{HTTP_HOST}/{R:1}" appendQueryString="true" redirectType="Temporary" />
</rule>

This rule only does a straight redirect i.e. http://mydomain.com to https://mydomain.com

Update 28 Nov 2017
Rule updated to fix some occasional issues experienced with live sites. The revised rule has been used successfully with a number of sites for a couple of weeks now.
