With HTTP and SSL termination ADCs you can route traffic to multiple backends based on several selectable rules. This allows you to do things like sending different hostnames to different backends.
When you select multiple backends you must then change the "When" column to one of the predefined match types. Attach a match type to each selected backend in order to tell them how to route traffic.
If you get an HTTP 503 error afterwards it means it could not select a valid route for your traffic, e.g. no ACLs matched.
You are given a choice of 6 rule types when matching HTTP/SSL content for routing. These are detailed below:
|Hostname||The exact hostname sent in the HTTP Host Header|
|Hostname Regex||A regular expression match of the HTTP Host Header|
|Exact Path||The exact path with no trailing content|
|Path Beginning||The start of the path with any trailing content|
|Path Regex||A regular expression based on the path|
|SNI Host||The SSL SNI host name that was presented|
We have several examples to assist with creating the most common types of content routing:
|Hostname||www.snapt.net - to match exactly "www.snapt.net"|
|Hostname Regex||^dev.* - to match anything starting with dev|
|Exact Path||/login - to match exactly http://your.website.com/login|
|Path Beginning||/images - to match anything in the /images path|
|Path Regex||^/api/v(.*)/cars - match /api/*/cars - e.g. /api/201901/cars|
|SNI Host||www.snapt.net - to match exactly "www.snapt.net" on the SSL certificate selection|
