URI redirects using external files
I have a rather slack web team which because of issues with the CMS they use they prefer to have the BigIP to do a lot of URI based redirects. At first I didn't mind too much, but now it is being used for virtually every redirect they require. Too add to this I need to replicate these redirects over 8 internal envronments they use for various stages of testing. So I am now looking at applying these redirecrs differntly, hopefully in a way that they can do it themselves without having to give them access to the BigIP itself.
At the moment I use HTTP classes for the redirects, but I was wondering if it is possible to access a remote file that could contain the list of redirects along with the redirect URI
example, /contact-us , /pubic/contactus
The idea being to give control to the web people without giving them access to the BigIPs and risk them mucking up the iRules or something else.
Has anyone done anything like this before?
Our BigIPs are still on the latest rev 10 patch level, we haven't jumped to 11 yet, depsite it being 1 louder :)
