Stingray - traffic script - HTTP redirection

Hello,

I try to achieve something quite simple with Stingray traffic script.

I'de like to redirect all users to a specific path when they enter a website URL without specifying any PATH.

I first extract the path (splitted in a table for my needs)

$path = string.split( http.getPath(), "/" );

and the hostname


$hostname = http.getHostHeader();



Then I'de like to find a way to know when the user is in root folder in order to redirect him.

I tried many things but it doesn't seems to work well and I allways get errors messages about table.


For example if I do this




if ($path[1])


{


  ...


}


else


{


  log.info("ROOT folder");


  http.changesite( ...);


}




I get this error :


Array index out of bounds: index 1 is not less than size: 1


Anyone has an idea of a test I could perform to know if I'm in root foder ?

Thanks for your help :-)

Re: Stingray - traffic script - HTTP redirection

Hello,

Let me respond my own question

I create an array with a NULL character inside and tested if the character was changed by my function or not.

This work fine and doesn't generate any errors anymore


$path = array.create(1,0);


$path = [""];


$path = string.split( http.getPath(), "/" );




if ($path[1] != "")


{


  #do something


}


else


{


  #You are in the root folder


}

Hi Gael.

Keep it simple... Try this...


if ( http.getPath() == "/" ) {


     http.redirect( "http://www.riverbed.com/mainApp/" );


}



Change site will preserve the path, but the root folder is always "/" so it doesn't add any benefits.


Cheers,

Mark

Re: Re: Stingray - traffic script - HTTP redirection

Thanks

It works indeed.

With the array what I didn't noticed is that the first row will allways be NULL as the URL PATH begins with a /

so if I type www.example.fr/ the array will be [""]

If I type www.example.fr/test the array will be ["","test"]

Another simple test I could do is with the size of the array

if (array.length($path) == 1)

{
     http.redirect( "www.example.fr/test" ); 

}
