verify the length of a value in the header

Currently I need an iRule that verifies the amount of characters that a field has in the header, if a cell phone number arrives (10 digits) it is redirected to a VS, but if a land line number arrives (7 digits) it is redirected to another VS, is it possible to make an irule for this?

 

Header:

<name>operatorUserId</name> 

<singleValue>+573xxxxxxxxx</singleValue> 

</values> 

<values> 

<name>providerUserId</name> 

<singleValue>+573xxxxxxxxx</singleValue> 

</values>

I'm unsure if you're talking about HTTP header values or not or some other protocol considering your example shows XML content I'm assuming not HTTP?

I have made this irule, but I do not know how verify the amount of characters

 

 when HTTP_REQUEST_DATA {

set operatorUserId [findstr [HTTP::payload] "<operatorUserId"]

if { [ string tolower $operatorUserId ] contains "10 characters" } {

#log local0. "$operatorUserId "

virtual VS_10_characters

#log local0. "\[HTTP::payload\]: [HTTP::payload]"

}

if { [ string tolower $operatorUserId ] contains "7 characters" } {

#log local0. "$operatorUserId "

virtual VS_7_characters

#log local0. "\[HTTP::payload\]: [HTTP::payload]"

}

Here's what you can do, I've tested it, able to capture it fine.

set digits [findstr [HTTP::payload] "<singleValue>" 13 "<"] log local0. "$digits & legth is [string length $digits]"

Payload:

<values> <name>operatorUserId</name> <singleValue>1234567809</singleValue> </values>

Output:

<HTTP_REQUEST>: 1234567809 & legth is 10

Payload:

<values> <name>operatorUserId</name> <singleValue>1234567</singleValue> </values>

Output:

<HTTP_REQUEST>: 1234567 & legth is 7

Now with the length value, you can either set it on a variable and do a if condition and send to respective virtual. Hope it helps.
