Problem this snippet solves:

This iRule sends an HTTP response based on the requested path. It can be used as a pool member on another LTM for testing. The iRule parses the first three characters in the path for a status code to use in the response. If a valid three digit code (100-599) isn't found, an HTTP 200 response is sent. The second example allows the client to specify a redirect location for requests made to a URI of /301 or /302.

How to use this snippet:

Dependencies

The virtual server must have an HTTP profile. No pool is required as the iRule sends a response for every request.

Code :

when HTTP_REQUEST {

   # Data to send to the client
   set data {Some data or HTML to send to the client.  If you want to use variables in here, replace the curly braces with quotes.}

   # Look for a URI starting with a forward slash and then 3 digits (the first digit being 1-5)
   # If one is found, set it as the HTTP response code.  Else, send back an HTTP 200
   if {[string match {/[1-5][0-9][0-9]*} [HTTP::path]]}{

      # Send the response with the status code from the requested path and data
      HTTP::respond [string range [HTTP::path] 1 3] content $data "a_header_name" "a_header_value"
      log local0. "Sending [string range [HTTP::path] 1 3] response with $data"

   } else {

      # Send a 200 response with data
      HTTP::respond 200 content $data "a_header_name" "a_header_value"
      log local0. "Sending default 200 response with $data"
   }
}
