LO57800: URL REDIRECT RULE TO REDIRECT TO A NON-DOMINO WEBSITE STILL CARRIES OVER THE ?OPENFORM FUNCTION
Closed as suggestion for future release.
Problem Description: When using a URL redirect rule to redirect requests to a Domino based web site that contain Domino specific URL Functions (i.e. ?OpenForm) to a new URL which is for a non-Domino web site, the URL Functions are carried over to the new URL. Example Redirect Rule: Incoming URL pattern: /testsite/* Redirect to this URL: http://www.ibm.com Example scenario when using above redirect rule: 1. Domino receives incoming URL request for "http://servername.com/testsite/database.nsf/SomeFormName?OpenFo rm" 2. Domino compares the wildcard and redirects the user to ibm.com except the URL the user is redirected to looks like this: http://www.ibm.com/us/en/sandbox/ver2/index.html?OpenForm Customer is running Domino 8.5.2 64-bit but I was able to reproduce on 32-bit as well. If this is working as designed, then customer would like an enhancement added to be able to use URL redirection rules to redirect requests for Domino based web sites to non-Domino based sites without carrying over the Domino specific URL Functions.
