IRule for Exact resource access rejection

I would like to know the feasibility of implementing iRules for below scenario, kindly suggest whether it is achievable or not.

 

https://my.domain.com/mrj/home/srt/portal/prtroot/com.dev.net.sendemail >> only request to this resource should get rejected

 

https://my.domain.com/mrj/home/srt/portal/prtroot/* >> other should get allowed

  • Hello NetWork.

    Actually the previous sentence has a mistake. It should be like this.

    set uri [getfield [HTTP::uri] "?" 1]

    This is used to remove de Query parameter of the URI. For example if you receive something like this:

    /mrj/home/srt/portal/prtroot/com.dev.net.sendemail?myuser=john

    Taking into account that you need to reject any URI related with

    /mrj/home/srt/portal/prtroot/com.dev.net.sendemail*

    Then you should use "starts_with" instead of "ends_with", and the sentence before would not be necessary.

    Your iRule should be like this:

    when HTTP_REQUEST {
    	if { [HTTP::uri] == "/" } { HTTP::redirect "http://[HTTP::host]/mrj" }
    	elseif { [string tolower [HTTP::uri]] starts_with "/mrj/home/srt/portal/prtroot/com.dev.net.sendemail" } { reject }
    	elseif { [string tolower [HTTP::uri]] starts_with "/mrj" or [string tolower [HTTP::uri]] starts_with "/web" or [string tolower [HTTP::uri]] starts_with "/htmlb" } { pool pool-A }
    	elseif { [string tolower [HTTP::uri]] starts_with "/abc" } { pool pool-B }
    	elseif { [string tolower [HTTP::uri]] starts_with "/" } {reject}
    }

    Please, if this was helpful don't forget to mark my answer as 'the best' to help me for the contribution.

  • Hello NetWork.

    Yes, it's feasible. Try this:

    when HTTP_REQUEST {
    	set uri [getfield [HTTP::uri] "?" 2]
    	if { $uri ends_with "/mrj/home/srt/portal/prtroot/com.dev.net.sendemail" } { reject }
    }

      Hi Dario,

       

      Thanks a lot for your response!

       

      Below is our existing and working iRule:

       

        when HTTP_REQUEST { 

       if { [HTTP::uri] == "/" } { HTTP::redirect "http://[HTTP::host]/mrj" }

       elseif { [string tolower [HTTP::uri]] starts_with "/mrj" or [string tolower [HTTP::uri]] starts_with "/web" or [string tolower [HTTP::uri]] starts_with "/htmlb" }

           { pool pool-A }

         elseif { [string tolower [HTTP::uri]] starts_with "/abc" }

           { pool pool-B }

         elseif { [string tolower [HTTP::uri]] starts_with "/" }

           {reject}

      }

       

      If we modify it as below, will it work?

       

       

      when HTTP_REQUEST {

       

      set uri [getfield [HTTP::uri] "?" 2]

       

      if { [HTTP::uri] == "/" } { HTTP::redirect "http://[HTTP::host]/mrj" }

       

      elseif { $uri ends_with "/mrj/home/srt/portal/prtroot/com.dev.net.sendemail" } 

          { reject }

       

      elseif { [string tolower [HTTP::uri]] starts_with "/mrj" or [string tolower [HTTP::uri]] starts_with "/web" or [string tolower [HTTP::uri]] starts_with "/htmlb" }

           { pool pool-A }

       

      elseif { [string tolower [HTTP::uri]] starts_with "/abc" }

           { pool pool-B }

       

         elseif { [string tolower [HTTP::uri]] starts_with "/" }

           {reject}

      }

       

       

      Also, can you please help to understand why we need to put "2" in set uri [getfield [HTTP::uri] "?" 2] ??

       

      And, in case if we want to reject anything after sendemail i.e /mrj/home/srt/portal/prtroot/com.dev.net.sendemail*, how that can be achieved.

  • Hi Dario,

     

    We have tested in our customer environment, it works as expected.
