Tech Tip : CA Single Sign-On : Placing Resource URI into HTTP Header variable 

Discussion created by Patrick-Dussault Employee on Aug 9, 2018

Question:


I'm running a Web Agent and I'd like to know how to make the resource
URL available for the backend application by sending a Header through
a response. Is that feasible ? How can we achieve this ?

 

Answer:

 

At first glance, if you use the Variable Type as "Request Context
Variables", you might be able to implement this.

Request Context Variables

Resource
Indicates the requested resource, such as /directory_name/.

A request context variable can capture any of this information and can
make it available for inclusion in a policy expression or
response. The key benefit of this type of variable is to provide
fine-grained request context information without any programming
logic.
