Firewall-cmd not adding HTTPs as a service

Hi all, beginner Fedora user here. I'm currently attempting to set up HTTPS on a Node/Express server I'm running, and I'm attempting to open port 433 to the public, which involves opening the firewall on this port. I ran the following commands:

firewall-cmd --permanent --add-service=https
firewall-cmd --complete-reload
firewall-cmd --list-all

Only to see:

services: ssh dhcpv6-client cockpit http

which is obviously devoid of "https". Where could I possibly be going wrong, or am I missing some context?

Some technical details that may matter:

  • I'm using Fedora 28
  • This IP is running off a school network, so maybe things aren't forwarding to HTTPs (? I don't even know if that even makes sense tbh)

Thanks in advance!
