Hi all

 

Im using my F5 BIGIP (v14) as reverse proxy to publish some websites by using local traffic policies.

 

But i need to perform a URL rewriting. To be specific, i need to strip a string from the URI path.

 

When applied as IRule it works correctly as I want:

 

when HTTP_REQUEST { if { [string tolower [HTTP::uri] ] starts_with "/path1" } { HTTP::uri [string map {"/path1/" "/"} [HTTP::uri]] } }

 

But when using local traffic policy it does not work as expected:

 

Replace - HTTP Uri - PATH ... with value... tcl:HTTP::uri [string map {"/path1/" "/"} [HTTP::uri]]

 

Am i doing something wrong? What would be the correct way?

PS: I want replace path1 with an empty string

 

 

Thanks all!

Hi mika,

 

You shouldn't add "HTTP::uri" command after "tcl:"

tcl:[string map {"/path1/" "/"} [HTTP::path]]
