Persistence on HTTPS using iRules
I am very new to irules so please be patient with me :-)
My scenario is:
- application load balanced between two datacenters
- application uses HTTPS
- mobile clients access the app online via mobiles & internet
I need to setup some sort of persistence but here is my problem, the application cannot use SSL offload, we cannot use source based as the mobile clients use NAT addresses from the provider and change every couple of minutes and we cannot use destination as we need to load balance across sites.
My thinking was along the lines of using an irule to inject a unique identifier into the header but I'm not sure if this is possible and where to begin.
Can someone please advise?
