Hi guys,

We're using IIS7.

We need to redirect seven


Having problems with the whitespace %20 on URL between six and seven
<rule name="PatternRedirect" stopProcessing="true">
          <match url="one/two/three/four.*" />
          <conditions trackAllCaptures="true">
                        <add input="{QUERY_STRING}" pattern="filterValue=([a-z]+)\s*([a-z]+)" />
                        <add input="{HTTP_HOST}" pattern="$" />
 <action type="Redirect" url="{C:1}-{C:2}" redirectType="Permanent" />

Tried \s* and [\s*] and (%20|\s*) none seem to work,

Any ideas?

There's no option to change the querying string. These links are out there and therefore we need to work out a way to ccapture six and seven as separate parameters and then use them to redirect to the target/ destination Url as in the above example.

tried to use \s* or %20 but neither seem to work. Any suggestions?

Try pattern with group:

Without group:

It ended up being the ordering of the patterns. One pattern was kicking in before the other and causing a problem with the redirect. The ordering has now been changed again.

Thanks for your help dude.
