irule to redirect on management interface




If a request comes in on the management address port 80 and I want to redirect it to https:// can the redirect be done on the management interface?






Device bigip 5100 version 9.4.8.

  • Hi Peter,



    I don't think it's possible to use an iRule to redirect traffic on a management IP or self IP from HTTP to the management GUIs HTTPS service. You could modify the httpd.conf, but changes to the daemon conf files can get overwritten during upgrades/hotfix installations. I couldn't figure out a way to do this through the supported bigip_sys.conf include files.



    For details on the supported methods to modify system daemon configuration, see this article and the comments:




    If you can't figure it out either, you could always open a case with F5 Support and make a request for enhancement.
