I am hoping this is a simple ask (nobbie in iRule scripting) , I am trying to create an irule that will route to specific pools based up on cookie header value. 

For e.g. 

Cookie header "Toggle"

Value "Y" or "N"

If toggle = Y goto Pool A

If toggle = N goto Pool B

Hi @viziony , 

Could you please try this : 

 

when HTTP_REQUEST {
if { [HTTP::header "Toggle"] equals "YES" }{
    pool pool_A
} else {
    pool pool_B
   }
}
#you can replace "equals" operator by "contains"

 

Try it and give me your feedback 
hope this helps you.
