    I am unable to update my original post. Here is an updated version.

    If you simply want to mask URL's then apply a STREAM profile with the following iRule.

    when HTTP_REQUEST {
      log local0. " HTTP_REQUEST"
       no replacement for requests
       disable compression server side
      HTTP::header remove "Accept-Encoding"
    when HTTP_RESPONSE {
      log local0. " HTTP_RESPONSE"
       only replace text content
      if {!([HTTP::header value Content-Type] contains "text")}{ return}
      set search ""
      foreach pair [class get myclass] { 
        set search "$search@[lindex $pair 0]@[lindex $pair 1]@"
      log local0. "String replace=$search"
      STREAM::expression $search

    Then create a string data class myclass as follows...

    Name                                      Value
    /secureapp/connect/report_en/REP   /en
    /peter                             /pan

    And get the following output from a logs

    Rule /Common/myrule : HTTP_REQUEST
    Rule /Common/myrule : HTTP_RESPONSE
    Rule /Common/myrule : search=@/secureapp/connect/report_en/REP@/en@@/peter@/pan@

    And the resulting web page...

    It works!
