    Posted 11-27-2018 05:13 AM

    I try to configure two-way URL rewrite with SSL reverse proxy.


    So, exising all clients access to server by URL http://myapp.local:81/

    rightnow, they want to setup SSL reverse proxy for this application.

    I try to configure by two-way URL rewrite + SSL reverse proxy but not work,

    I design URL for all clients http://newmyapp.local and then Proxy will redirect(302) to https://newmyapp.local

    after client request to https://newmyapp.local I try to configure proxy rewirte to internal server by URL http://myapp.local:81

    but its not work.

    Anyonce have bester idea please advice?

    Hi Pongsaphat,


                   This should work fine. Try to test the TWURL first before you introduce the http to https redirect. Below you can find a policy I have created for your specific need. Try adding the same in a seperate CPL layer and test the access.


    	url.domain=https://newmyapp.local  action.App_portal(yes)
    define action ForceUncompressedResponse
    end action ForceUncompressedResponse
    define url_rewrite App_rewrite
      	rewrite_url_prefix  "https://newmyapp.local" "http://myapp.local:81"
    	rewrite_url_substring "https://newmyapp.local" "http://myapp.local:81"
    	rewrite_script_substring "https://newmyapp.local" "http://myapp.local:81"
    define action App_portal
    	rewrite(request.header.Referer, "https://newmyapp.local/(.*)", "http://myapp.local:81/$(1)")
    	rewrite(response.header.Location,"http://myapp.local:81/(.*)", "https://newmyapp.local/$(1)")
    	rewrite(response.header.Content-Location,"http://myapp.local:81/(.*)", "https://newmyapp.local/$(1)")
    	transform App_rewrite
