Pinned topic Redirect junctions

‏2012-12-04T19:34:55Z |
Is it possible to re-direct 1 junction to another junction ?

We have a large number of users that have a webseal junction (junc1)bookmarked. That application is going to be moved to a different backend server that is already defined on another junction (junc2).

Is it possible to re-direct anyone using junc1 in the url to junc2 ?

    Don't know of a way to send a 301 or 302 for this, but you could redefine "junc1" to be a local directory junction and create some pages with meta-refresh content. If using TAM 6.1.1 you could use a junction specific defined error page (ie create your own custom 404 error page) to perform the "redirect" for all resources.

      Sending redirects is supported in TAM (ISAM) 7.0 by using "HTTP Transformation". Not sure if this is an option for you.

      The following scenario should be a good starting point to getting this working.

    Can you redefine junction1 to be the same backend server as junction2?

      I wouldn't do that. Not a good idea to have 2 junctions pointing to the same backend on the same instance.
