Hi guys,

We're using IIS7.

We need to redirect http://www.domain.com/one/two/three/four?addFilter=five&filterValue=six seven

to http://www.domain.com/four/six-seven?showproducts=true

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="domain.com$" />
          </conditions>
 <action type="Redirect" url="http://domain.com/womens/{C:1}-{C:2}" redirectType="Permanent" />
        </rule>


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

Any ideas?

Thanks
Yashy

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:
filterValue=([a-z]*)\s([a-z]*)

Open in new window

Without group:
filterValue=[a-z]*\s[a-z]*

Open in new window

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.
