I found in Akamai, if you need to perform a regex-match on something, it doesn’t actually regex match.
The situation: Your web service sends a “set-cookie” response header, however the domain specified is an internal or different domain. You need to modify the domain.
Here is the set-cookie response:
(in the below example, this is for ARR affinity within Azure/IIS)
The domain part of the response won’t work, as that domain isn’t accessible externally.
For a ‘modify outgoing response’ find-and-replace behaviour, Akamai state you can “regex_match PCRE” (pearl compatible regex).
This means if we want to set a BLANK domain, we could simply do something like this:
In theory, this would match the string “Path” and everything after it, replacing with a single “;”. However, you will find that doesn’t work.
No combination of PCRE language will work. You have to specify the entire string to replace, like so:
And that works fine. Akamai plz.
