Basic redirection to fixed uri


I’m new to HAProxy and looking to simply re-direct http traffic to Tomcat on the same server - will add conditional logic latter.

Pertinent config includes:
frontend http_front
bind *:8082 # Port HAProxy uses
default_backend http_back

backend http_back
mode http
server localhost # Port used by Apache Tomcat

The redirect should go to which is served by Tomcat

I’ve tried various formats using the “redirect” and “http-request set-uri” commands to no avail. Any suggestions are appreciated.


Are you actually wanting to return a redirect to the user that points to, or do you want to change the url in the request to the backend?


Change URI in request to backend


You should be able to do that with something like:

http-request set-path /static/test.html
