Need help with URL ReWrite in IIS 8.5

I am new to URL ReWrite. I am trying to create a rule to change
/Parts.aspx?pn=3299W-1-103
to
/Items.aspx?pn=3299W-1-103
With after "pn=" needing to be captured and applied to the rewritten URL.

I started with creating a blank rule. In the Match URL, under pattern I have "^/Parts.aspx?id=([_0-9a-z-]+)" but when I go to Test Pattern, it says the input data does not match the pattern.

If in the pattern I change it to "^/Parts.aspx([_0-9a-z-]+)" and test with "/Parts.aspx3299W-1-103" it works, but I need the "?pn=" to be there.

Any ideas or help?

Here you go:

<add input="{QUERY_STRING}" pattern="(?:^|&)id=([0-9]+)(?:&|$)" /> - this condition checks if the query string contains a parameter id that has a numeric value. The actual value is captured in a condition back-reference. Note that this pattern will work even if there are other parameters on the query string.

For the testing of the pattern, turns out I needed to use the escape character before the ?, so the pattern is actually

^/Parts.aspx\?pn=([_0-9a-z-]+)

So now testing the pattern works.

However, testing the actual website, I keep getting a 404 page not found and looking at the IIS log, it appears that the rewrite rule is not even being used.

OK, got this to work finally.

SIMPLIFY

On the rule for pattern to match, used

/parts.aspx

rewrite to

/items.aspx

and it works as expected.

Sometimes try not to overthink the problem and simplify it and go with the basics.
