Need to redirect complete URL into redirected uri

  • ashk If your intent is to redirect anything going to www.abc.com  with any URI path starting with "/find/redirect/" the following should work for you.

     

    when CLIENT_ACCEPTED priority 500 {
    
        set DEFAULT_POOL [LB::server pool]
    
    }
    
    when HTTP_REQUEST priority 500 {
    
        set HOST [string tolower [HTTP::host]]
        set URI [string tolower [HTTP::uri]]
    
        if { ${HOST} == "www.abc.com" } {
            if { ${URI} starts_with "/find/redirect/" } {
                
                HTTP::respond 301 Location "https://www.xyz.com/found/redirect?url=https://$HOST$URI"
    
            }
        } else {
            $DEFAULT_POOL
        }
    
    }

     

    Now if you want to redirect anything that connects to www.abc.com  to www.xyz.com/found/redirect?url=https:// <old_path> the following should do the job.

     

    when CLIENT_ACCEPTED priority 500 {
    
        set DEFAULT_POOL [LB::server pool]
    
    }
    
    when HTTP_REQUEST priority 500 {
    
        set HOST [string tolower [HTTP::host]]
        set URI [string tolower [HTTP::uri]]
    
        if { ${HOST} == "www.abc.com" } {
    
            HTTP::respond 301 Location "https://www.xyz.com/found/redirect?url=https://$HOST$URI"
    
        } else {
            $DEFAULT_POOL
        }
    
    }

     

    If I am missunderstanding the request please provide a real world example of one of the requests or rewording the question so we can have a different approach to the issue at hand.

  • ashk I believe something like the following would work for you while also assuming your virtual server has a default pool associated to it and you are performing SSL termination on that virtual server.

    when CLIENT_ACCEPTED priority 500 {
    
        set DEFAULT_POOL [LB::server pool]
    
    }
    
    when HTTP_REQUEST priority 500 {
    
        set HOST [string tolower [HTTP::host]]
        set URI [string tolower [HTTP::uri]]
    
        if { ${HOST} == "www.abc.com" } {
            if { ${URI} == "/find/redirect" } {
                
                HTTP::respond 301 Location "https://www.xyz.com/found/redirect?url=https://$HOST$URI"
    
            }
        } else {
            $DEFAULT_POOL
        }
    
    }

     

  • Hello Paulius, 

    I see its working now thanks you so much again. 😄 

    Starts_with worked. 🙂 

  • Hello Paulius,

    Thank you for the rule, I see its working with the URI only when its "/find/redirect". 

    it is not working when I use "*"  if { ${URI} == "/find/redirect/*" } 

    i tried starts with but syntax error. How to ger all the query string in path which starts with /find/redirect/XXXX/xXXx/XXX/XX something like this.

    Appreciate your help.
