Subject Question about parent.config
Date Mon, 11 Jan 2021 18:22:33 GMT
Hi all,

I wish to use parent.config to control parent selection based on path elements in the client
URL.  I know this is possible with the url_regex primary qualifier, however my question is
as follows:

The URL path element in question will be in the client request URL but will be dropped (by
a custom plugin) from the URL before the request is made to the parent.  Does anybody know
if the url_regex qualifier applies to the full original client URL,  or to the URL that is
imminently about to be pulled from the parent.  If it’s the latter and there’s anything
I can do in the custom plug-in to make this work more as I would like it, then please let
me know.

For example:

The client facing URL may be :

The URL actually pulled from the parent :

The url_regex I want to use : /some-element/

So, in summary, I wish to use a token in the client URL that would indicate which parent to
use, but that token will not be in the URL ultimately pulled from the parent.

Thank you,
