Rewite Policy


Recommended Posts

Hi, I would like to rewrite URL as per below.

My application is hosted on internal network with internal domain under openshift, now I would like to expose the application to outside world with different URL and with SSL.

Internal URL : http://application1.apps.xpay.internaldomain.com

 

External URL: https://application1.externaldomain.com.sa

 

Thanks for help in advance.

Are you sure it is necessary to do URL Transformation?

You can just add the Backend server ip-based, point the external DNS towards the Virtual IP of your Content Switch (or Loadbalancer, depending how you want to publish it) and bind the corresponding openshift service there. Only if Openshift Backend requires the request in internal domain format you would need URL Transformation. 

Ideally you would use Service Groups on Loadbalancing, you can do Port Translation (e.g publish your Virtual Server with https:443 and connect towards backend server with http:80, you will need to implement certificates on NetScaler though)

Sure, if it's just accessing that  particular backend and it doesn't check the hostname, then regular load balancing will do the trick. The way the question was worded is why I suggested URL transformation.
