F5 - insert http header on redirect and carry it over to the redirected site?

Hi,

  I am trying to achieve the following: F5 pretending to be website1.client.com redirects to website2.client.com and inserting http header on redirect. We need to carry this header over in browser request to website2.client.com

 

I am able to insert HTTP header using HTTP:redirect:

when HTTP_REQUEST {
  if { [HTTP::host] equals "webserver1.client.com" } 
       {
            HTTP::respond 302 Location "https://webserver2.client.com" thisisheadername thisisheadervalue
          
       } 
}

 

  I do see my cookie among response headers, however, when going to webserevr2.clinet.com, my cookie not among request headers.

  Is it possible to do? 

Thank in advance.

      Glad to see you got this resolved, what was the fix our of curiosity . 

  • It seems like you're attempting to enter a host header but that should change from website1 to website2 when the HTTP redirect occurs.

  • Hi Paulus,

     

    I am trying to insert a non-default custom header that will be carried over when redirect from website1 to website2 occurs.  I am not trying to insert "host" header. Sorry for my initial question wording if you got such impression.
