    Question:


    I'm running a Web Agent and I'd like to know how to make the resource
    URL available for the backend application by sending a Header through
    a response. Is that feasible ? How can we achieve this ?

     

    Answer:

     

    At first glance, if you use the Variable Type as "Request Context
    Variables", you might be able to implement this.

    Request Context Variables

    Resource
    Indicates the requested resource, such as /directory_name/.

    A request context variable can capture any of this information and can
    make it available for inclusion in a policy expression or
    response. The key benefit of this type of variable is to provide
    fine-grained request context information without any programming
    logic.
