iRule for redirection


Dear All


Can anyone suggest me the irule for an url redirection? I want to redirect from to

Please suggest me if the LTM policy also solve the purpose.


Thanks in Advance




Below iRule should fulfil your requirement.


when HTTP_REQUEST { if { [HTTP::host] eq "" } { HTTP::redirect } }  

Yes LTM policy will also solve your requirement. Attached snap shows the sample policy.


Hope it helps!


Hi Mayur

I already tried with the Ltm policy, but site ( not coming with the policy, but redirection is happening there. and without policy if I browse directly its coming.

I will check the irule, and let you know.


Many thanks for your valuable suggestion.

Be careful with this code since any HTTP path would be redirected to /xyz/ , also the opening " { " bracket at line 3 needs to be moved in line 2 for proper syntax.


If you need to match only "/" path use the following code instead.

This will append /xyz/ without issuing a redirect -- based on your previous comment, I'm assuming the /xyz/ path is hosted within the same pool you use for load balancing ; a redirect will be required if this is not the case

   if {[HTTP::host] eq "" && [HTTP::path] eq "/"}{ HTTP::uri "/xyz/" }
