ACE Redirect behaviour

I' wondering over the exact behavior of the 301 and 302 redirects regarding altering/keeping the original GET/POSTS.

We need to keep the original POST and it seems as if we don't when using 301 and 302.

So, whats your take on this?

Hi,

the ACE is not changing the behaviour, it's the client's browser. It does appear that the ACE is changing the POST to a GET but isn't.

As an example, a client browser sends a POST and the ACE receives the POST. For a redirect, the ACE responds back to the client with either a 301 or 302 code.

Here's where everything goes sideways ....

The client browser receives the redirect code, but this isn't what it is expecting to receive from a POST. In turn, the client browser now sends a GET back to the ACE. The ACE receives the GET and forwards onto the load balanced servers that, in turn, aren't expecting this. Application fails because of this.

Regards,

Steve
