iRule help for two redirects based off uri with variable

Hi,

 

I'm trying to create an iRule that does the following redirects:

 

http://xxx.com/ -> https://yyy.com/find-a-provider/

http://xxx.com/Home/Physician?profileId=UserValue -> https://yyy.com/find-a-provider/physician/UserValue

 

The first redirect based on a uri of "/" is pretty straight-forward, but the second redirect that needs to repopulate the UserValue and tying it all together in one rule is where I'm struggling. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

  • Hi RobS,

    Can you try this iRule?

    when HTTP_REQUEST {
    	switch -glob [HTTP::uri] {
    		"/" {
    			HTTP::redirect "https://yyy.com/find-a-provider/"
    		}
    		"/Home/Physician?profileId*" { 
    			set UserValue [URI::query [HTTP::uri] profileId]
    			# log local0. "profileId = $UserValue"
    			HTTP::redirect "https://yyy.com/find-a-provider/physician/$UserValue"
    		}
    	}
    }

  • Can be done but consider second redirection option then 1st. Let Devcentral team knows if any questions.

      Thank-you, this works great! I didn't realize I could just pull the value of profileId and thought I was going to have to parse the uri.
