iRules change HTTP::Payload when talking to the backend servers

I need to make some changes using the iRules to the request payload then need to pass the original request to the backend server, is there a compatible event with HTTP::Payload command that can pass traffic to the backend server?

Thanks in advance.

  • Yes its doable, use HTTP_REQUEST_DATA event to make your manipulation on the payload.

    Refer the below article.

        Can you elaborate what you are trying to achieve by manipulating the payload twice? Maybe there is another way to get to your goal.


        I don't say it is nonsense, but I think it would help to know the use-case.
