Web Redirection Service

Configuration

To configure a Web Redirection Service, attach a dictionary element to a path in your Web transport:

option description
type must be "redirect"
url the HTTP(S) URL where to redirect to, e.g. "http://somehost:8080/something".

Example

Here is how you define a Web Transport that redirects HTTP (and WebSocket) on port 80 to secure HTTPS (and secure WebSocket) on port 443:

{
   "type": "web",
   "endpoint": {
      "type": "tcp",
      "port": 80
   },
   "paths": {
      "/": {
         "type": "redirect",
         "url": "https://example.com"
      }
   }
}

The former example assumes the host's name is example.com

The single parameter to the Redirection service is url, which can take different forms:

  • ../foobar (relative)
  • /download (absolute)
  • https://example.com (fully qualified)

You can also redirect subpaths on a Web Transport:

{
   "type": "web",
   "endpoint": {
      "type": "tcp",
      "port": 80
   },
   "paths": {
      "/": {
         "type": "static",
         "directory": ".."
      },
      "ws": {
         "type": "websocket",
         "url": "ws://localhost:8080/ws"
      },
      "tavendo": {
         "type": "redirect",
         "url": "http://somewhere.com/to/something"
      }
   }
}
