iRule to insert HTTP Basic Authorization to the server side connection

Hi Team,

Good day. We are working on an iRule to insert http basic authorization for the session to the application servers.

The front end connection from the client to the LB will not have http basic authorization value. whereas on the connection from the LB to the application server we need to insert basic authorization value in the header.

  • Will the below irule work

    HTTP::header insert X-Common-Name "1234"

  • Hi Thiyagu,

    The iRule below should do the trick for you.

    when HTTP_REQUEST {
       set username "Aladdin"
       set password "open sesame"
       set credentials [b64encode "$username:$password"]
       HTTP::header insert "Authorization" "Basic $credentials"

    Have fun,
