Reverse Proxy using Rewrite Maps RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-965846884 posted

     I have basic reverse proxys working but I would like to use Rewrite Maps as I potentially have many static pairs that I need to match, not conforming to a standard necessarily.

    Currently I have the following rule.

                    <clear />
                    <rule name="ReverseProxy">
                        <match url=".*" />
                        <conditions logicalGrouping="MatchAll">
                            <add input="{StaticMap:{Request_URI}}" pattern="(.+)" />
                        <action type="Rewrite" url="{C:0}" />
                    <rewriteMap name="StaticMap" defaultValue="/server/">
                        <add key="/server/xhtml/user/fi54321" value="/54321" />
                        <add key="/server/xhtml/user/fi12345" value="/12345" />


    So basically I want  http://mydomain.com/54321 to get rewritten to

    When I enter  http://mydomain.com/54321 I get a 404. After putting in the defaultValue for the rewriteMap it hits that /server/ folder so it appears neither of the two map items actually matches.

    Your rewriteMap should look like this

     <rewriteMap name="StaticMap" defaultValue="/server/">
        <add key="54321" value="/server/xhtml/user/fi54321" />
        <add key="12345" value="/server/xhtml/user/fi12345" />

     That gets me a little further I think but once I flipped the key value pairs and enter http://domain.com/12345 it actuall redirected me to http://domain.com/server/xhtml/user/fi12345 showing me them the "defaultValue" page.

    If I change
    <action type="Rewrite" url="{C:0}" />
    <action type="Rewrite" url="{C:1}" />

    IIS responds with a 502 error.

    Since you say you have basic reverse proxy working, I assume that you have ARR installed and configured.  Can you collect failed request trace log with the new rules?

     Anil - sorry I have not followed up earlier but did you get a chance to look at the trace I had sent you?

    I do not see it in my inbox - when did you send it and what is the e-mail address from which you sent it?
