Alias


Description

Aliases are a way of mapping an incoming request from one location to another. An alias can change the session, or even server of a requested URL.

When an alias is found in a URL, the alias's value is substituted in place of the alias. The alias must match the user's URL from the beginning. If the alias matches a string in the middle of the URL, no substitution is performed.

Parameters

Alias
A string that will be replaced in a URL if it matches the beginning of the URL. Because it must match in the beginning, a leading slash must be used.
[Actual]
The value that replaces the alias. *WEBULATOR aliases can optionally have a value; redirection types must have an [Actual] value.
[SrcType]
*WEBULATOR
All URLs starting with this alias will be treated as Webulator/400 application URLs.
*REDIRECT
Causes Webulator/400 to redirect the browser to a URL on a different server.
*TREDIRECT
Same as *Redirect except the browser should consider the redirection temporary.

Default If No Entry Found

If an alias is not listed, aliasing does not apply.

Multiple entries may exist in the alias configuration file.

If the same alias is listed in the alias configuration file, it is undefined which one will be used. It is recommended that the each alias entry appear only once.
