Also obviously i could do this for each individual app but there are many. I wanted to see if there was a way where i could take any request coming in that was in theirapp.example.com and flip it to theirapp.datacenter.example.com
SteveD1979 If this is HTTP traffic you can change it to a standard, apply an HTTP profile, and the irule in question and it should work. If you are doing HTTPS communication it would require that you change it to standard, HTTP profile, SSL client profile, and the iRule and it should work.
Ok thanks. Per openshift the VIP has to be layer 4 but i was able to put the HTTP profile on it since the one we're testing is http and since it let me add the irule with http_request i thought it might be ok.
SteveD1979 Sadly, with an SSL connection and you do not have SSL termination being performed on a standard VS you cannot have an HTTP profile because the F5 cannot look at the HTTP header since it's encrypted.
