Redirecting to a maintenance page based on http response code and content-type == text/html

We currently redirect to "maintenance pages" based on HTML response error codes I.E http 500 error. We will like to add also checking for response on content type "content-type == text/html" and not redirect if the content type is json.

 

We have something very simple in place on a few i-Rules:

 

when HTTP_RESPONSE { if { [HTTP::status] contains "500"} { HTTP::redirect "https://www.abcdefg.error.com/error.html" } }

 

How do we craft this new i-Rule?

Try something like this:

if { [HTTP::status] contains "500" and [HTTP::header exists "content-type"] } { if { [string tolower [HTTP::header value "content-type"]] equals "text/html" } { # redirect here } }

 

Thanks, I'll try this and let you know.
