Developer Documentation


This action is used to redirect HTTP request messages to a new URL. The reply_status value specified in this action is used as the status code of HTTP response message which is sent back to client (Normally a browser). The HTTP status code for redirection is 3xx, for example, 301, 302, 303, 307, etc. The redirect_url is the new URL that the HTTP request message is redirected to. Normally browser will send another HTTP request to the new URL after receiving a redirection response message. Captured variables and built-in variables can be used in redirect_url field. For example, to redirect all HTTP requests to HTTPS requests for a virtual server. We create an LBRule without any conditions, add an LBHttpRedirectAction to the rule. Set the redirect_url field of the LBHttpRedirectAction to: https://\(_host\)_request_uri And set redirect_status to “302”, which means found. This rule will redirect all HTTP requests to HTTPS server port on the same host.
