Define routing policies for generic server clusters

We can define routing policies for generic server clusters. A routing policy is a set of rules that determine how the server routes incoming requests.

  1. In the administrative console, click Servers > Server types > On demand routers > ODR_name > On demand router properties > Generic server cluster routing policies.

  2. Click Work classes for HTTP requests and click New.

  3. Type a name for the work class in the Name field.

  4. Click Finish to confirm the new work class.

  5. To set a URI match condition for an existing rule, type the name of the URI in the If URI matches field, and from the For virtual host list, select a host name.

  6. Assign a work class with no rules and provide choices for the other fields in the panel.

  7. Click Apply or OK to commit the new rule settings. The new ODR has a default routing policy, a URI pattern of asterisk (*), a virtual host selection of default_host and a default routing action of Reject with return code with the reject return code set to 404.

What to do next

After creating the ODR and apply any optional configuration parameters, we can define the ability to route work to nodes that are not running Intelligent Management.
