string
on success
A string that specifies how to compare the PathMatchCondition object's `attributeValue` string to the incoming URI.
* **EXACT_MATCH** - The incoming URI path must exactly and completely match the `attributeValue` string.
* **FORCE_LONGEST_PREFIX_MATCH** - The system looks for the `attributeValue` string with the best, longest match of the beginning portion of the incoming URI path.
* **PREFIX_MATCH** - The beginning portion of the incoming URI path must exactly match the `attributeValue` string.
* **SUFFIX_MATCH** - The ending portion of the incoming URI path must exactly match the `attributeValue` string.

Sample:
EXACT_MATCH
   
description
string
on success
A brief description of the access control rule. Avoid entering confidential information.
example: `192.168.0.0/16 and 2001:db8::/32 are trusted clients. Whitelist them.`

Sample:

prefix
string
on success
A string to prepend to the header value. The resulting header value must conform to RFC 7230. With the following exceptions: * value cannot contain `$` * value cannot contain patterns like `{variable_name}`. They are reserved for future extensions. Currently, such values are invalid.
Example: `example_prefix_value`

Sample:
prefix_example
   
redirect_uri
complex
on success

     
host
string
on success
The valid domain name (hostname) or IP address to use in the redirect URI.
When this value is null, not set, or set to `{host}`, the service preserves the original domain name from the incoming HTTP request URI.
All RedirectUri tokens are valid for this property. You can use any token more than once.
Curly braces are valid in this property only to surround tokens, such as `{host}`
Examples:
* **example.com** appears as `example.com` in the redirect URI.
* **in{host}** appears as `inexample.com` in the redirect URI if `example.com` is the hostname in the incoming HTTP request URI.
* **{port}{host}** appears as `8081example.com` in the redirect URI if `example.com` is the hostname and the port is `8081` in the incoming HTTP request URI.

Sample:
host_example
     
path
string
on success
The HTTP URI path to use in the redirect URI.
When this value is null, not set, or set to `{path}`, the service preserves the original path from the incoming HTTP request URI. To omit the path from the redirect URI, set this value to an empty string, "".
All RedirectUri tokens are valid for this property. You can use any token more than once.
The path string must begin with `/` if it does not begin with the `{path}` token.
Examples:
* __/example/video/123__ appears as `/example/video/123` in the redirect URI.
* __/example{path}__ appears as `/example/video/123` in the redirect URI if `/video/123` is the path in the incoming HTTP request URI.
* __{path}/123__ appears as `/example/video/123` in the redirect URI if `/example/video` is the path in the incoming HTTP request URI.
* __{path}123__ appears as `/example/video123` in the redirect URI if `/example/video` is the path in the incoming HTTP request URI.
* __/{host}/123__ appears as `/example.com/123` in the redirect URI if `example.com` is the hostname in the incoming HTTP request URI.
* __/{host}/{port}__ appears as `/example.com/123` in the redirect URI if `example.com` is the hostname and `123` is the port in the incoming HTTP request URI.
* __/{query}__ appears as `/lang=en` in the redirect URI if the query is `lang=en` in the incoming HTTP request URI.

Sample:
path_example
     
port
integer
on success
The communication port to use in the redirect URI.
Valid values include integers from 1 to 65535.
When this value is null, the service preserves the original port from the incoming HTTP request URI.
Example: `8081`

Sample:
56
     
protocol
string
on success
The HTTP protocol to use in the redirect URI.
When this value is null, not set, or set to `{protocol}`, the service preserves the original protocol from the incoming HTTP request URI. Allowed values are:
* HTTP * HTTPS * {protocol}
`{protocol}` is the only valid token for this property. It can appear only once in the value string.
Example: `HTTPS`

Sample:
protocol_example
     
query
string
on success
The query string to use in the redirect URI.
When this value is null, not set, or set to `{query}`, the service preserves the original query parameters from the incoming HTTP request URI.
All `RedirectUri` tokens are valid for this property. You can use any token more than once.
If the query string does not begin with the `{query}` token, it must begin with the question mark (?) character.
You can specify multiple query parameters as a single string. Separate each query parameter with an ampersand (&) character. To omit all incoming query parameters from the redirect URI, set this value to an empty string, "".
If the specified query string results in a redirect URI ending with `?` or `&`, the last character is truncated. For example, if the incoming URI is `http://host.com:8080/documents` and the query property value is `?lang=en&{query}`, the redirect URI is `http://host.com:8080/documents?lang=en`. The system truncates the final ampersand (&) because the incoming URI included no value to replace the {query} token.
Examples: * **lang=en&time_zone=PST** appears as `lang=en&time_zone=PST` in the redirect URI.
* **{query}** appears as `lang=en&time_zone=PST` in the redirect URI if `lang=en&time_zone=PST` is the query string in the incoming HTTP request. If the incoming HTTP request has no query parameters, the `{query}` token renders as an empty string.
* **lang=en&{query}&time_zone=PST** appears as `lang=en&country=us&time_zone=PST` in the redirect URI if `country=us` is the query string in the incoming HTTP request. If the incoming HTTP request has no query parameters, this value renders as `lang=en&time_zone=PST`.
* **protocol={protocol}&hostname={host}** appears as `protocol=http&hostname=example.com` in the redirect URI if the protocol is `HTTP` and the hostname is `example.com` in the incoming HTTP request.
* **port={port}&hostname={host}** appears as `port=8080&hostname=example.com` in the redirect URI if the port is `8080` and the hostname is `example.com` in the incoming HTTP request URI.

Sample:
query_example
   
response_code
integer
on success
The HTTP status code to return when the incoming request is redirected.
The status line returned with the code is mapped from the standard HTTP specification. Valid response codes for redirection are:
* 301 * 302 * 303 * 307 * 308
The default value is `302` (Found).
Example: `301`

Sample:
56
   
status_code
integer
on success
The HTTP status code to return when the requested HTTP method is not in the list of allowed methods. The associated status line returned with the code is mapped from the standard HTTP specification. The default value is `405 (Method Not Allowed)`.
Example: 403

Sample:
56
   
suffix
string
on success
A string to append to the header value. The resulting header value must conform to RFC 7230. With the following exceptions: * value cannot contain `$` * value cannot contain patterns like `{variable_name}`. They are reserved for future extensions. Currently, such values are invalid.
Example: `example_suffix_value`

Sample:
suffix_example
   
value
string
on success
A header value that conforms to RFC 7230. With the following exceptions: * value cannot contain `$` * value cannot contain patterns like `{variable_name}`. They are reserved for future extensions. Currently, such values are invalid.
