Need to collect dynamic content and using in HTTP redirect

Hello All,



I have been searching devcentral for the proper way to collect dynamic content in a URL and redirecting to a completely different url and using that dynamic content.



here is an example of what I need to do:



There were always been dynamic content after Param2="xxxxxxxx" (10 numeric characters)



I need to redirect the above link to a completely new URL with the dynamic content after Param_2="xxxxxxxx"



From what I have been reading it sounds like there are a few ways to do this. I dont seem to able to find enough examples to implement this with findstr or getfield. Then I saw some other examples parsing and storing certain variables with http payload.



Any help getting started would be appreciated. Thanks everyone !

  • Is it the value of param2 you want to parse? If so you can use [URI::query [HTTP::uri] param2] to get the value.



  • Thanks Aaron let start with that and build an irule to handle that. I will reply once I have constructed a working irule
  • finally finished the irule and it turns to to be simple enough to do:

    Thanks for the push in the right direction

    when HTTP_REQUEST {
       This will be "Param_2 Value"
      set ID [URI::query [HTTP::uri] Param_2]
        redirect to "$ID"
