Hide part of URL


#1

Hi

Is it possible to hide part of the URL with haproxy, for example

https://site1.domain.com/HIDE/login/

should be visible as https://site1.domain.com/login in the browser.

Thank you.

If you want to rewrite a request’s path you can do so with http-request set-path:

http-request set-path /HIDE%[path]

(Note that there isn’t a / between /HIDE and %[path] as the last token already contains a slash.)


However please note that this only rewrites the HTTP request path, not the paths within the served HTML. Therefore the actual page might still “leak” the /HIDE paths.

To my knowledge there is no solution to rewrite the HTTP body with HAProxy itself.
