Error description

  • 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.
