URL-Redirect configuration differences


I'm currently in the process of configuring a pair of 11506's, as part of the installation I'd need to configure a number of URL re-directs (http to https), I (thought) I'd the configuration in place, but looking at some documentation on there appear to be a No. of ways to re-direct traffic, the first, which I've written up, is to use content rules for the VIP termination, and for traffic requiring re-direction, point the content rule to a separate re-direct service, thus for each re-direct, we require a content rule and a re-direct service.

Looking at some documentation earlier, it appears I can also use a content rule re-direct, and simply within the content rule, apply the re-direct statement, this removing the need for a separate re-direct service for each content rule.

Whilst I'm happy to run with the original configuration I've applied, what are the differences between the 2 re-direct configurations? Are there any?

Re: URL-Redirect configuration differences

here is a link describing all the different ways

for http to https you need service in order to rewrite the domain with https.

Re: URL-Redirect configuration differences

can I do url rewrites on the ace module.

Re: URL-Redirect configuration differences

ACE will have this feature in the next software release (Ace 2.0).

Currently only 302 redirects are possible.
