Haproxy url rewrite and redirect using ssl


My requirement is to hit multiple urls in the same context path through haproxy
1)https:(slash slash) mydomain/context/path1 (backend servers 1)
2)https://mydomain/context/path2 ((backend servers 2)
Both the paths will use different backend servers
Now all the css and jpegs for that path (https: mydomain/context) should be served from same backend servers.

Added to that i want to redirect urls to backends based on some custom path
So i want the user to give https://mydomain/context/<custom_path> . I want the backend to strip <custom_path> before sending request to backend servers with all the css/jpegs etc … gettin served from same backend.

Please note I am doing: . SSL/TLS bridging or re-encryption: (In this mode, HAProxy decipher the traffic on the client side and re-encrypt it on the server side)

The way i tried to do it was i tried to achieve this is given below.I tried to strip the ENV1 in the backend while directing it to the servers. Inserted a cookie in the hdr .
On subsequent request with cookie all requests should be ideally routed to the same backend which will force css and jpegs also to same backend . This does not work at all . Help is appreciated
