Configuration Options

General

The ReplacePathRegex middleware will:

  • replace the matching path by the specified one.
  • store the original path in a X-Replaced-Path header.

regex

The regex option is the regular expression to match and capture the path from the request URL.

Warning

Care should be taken when defining replacement expand variables: $1x is equivalent to ${1x}, not ${1}x (see Regexp.Expand), so use ${1} syntax.

Tip

Regular expressions and replacements can be tested using online tools such as Go Playground or the Regex101.

replacement

The replacement option defines how to modify the path to have the new target path.
