LTM - iRule operator

Hello,

We agree that I can simplify the line : 

(not [HTTP::header "str1"] equals "str2"))

to

[HTTP::header "str1"] ne "str2")

 

I have a doubt : https://clouddocs.f5.com/api/irules/Operators.html

Thank you.

LTM - 15.x

  • Hi cpt_ri_F5,

    You can use "ne" operator for string comparisons. The function of the following two lines is the same.

    not ([HTTP::header str1] equals "str2")
    [HTTP::header str1] ne "str2"

    eq ne: Boolean string equal and string not equal. Each operator produces a zero/one result. The operand types are interpreted only as strings
