SwitchFilter

Verifies that a specified condition is met. If the condition is met or no condition is specified, the request is diverted to the associated handler, with no further processing by the switch filter.

Usage

{
    "name": string,
    "type": "SwitchFilter",
    "config": {
        "onRequest": [
            {
                "condition": runtime expression<boolean>,
                "handler": Handler reference
            },
            ...
        ],
        "onResponse": [
            {
                "condition": runtime expression<boolean>,
                "handler": Handler reference
            },
            ...
        ]
    }
}

Properties

"onRequest": array of objects, optional

Conditions to test (and handler to dispatch to, if true) before the request is handled.

"onResponse": array of objects, optional

Conditions to test (and handler to dispatch to, if true) after the response is handled.

"condition": runtime expression<boolean>, optional

If the expression evaluates to true, the request is dispatched to the handler. If no condition is specified, the request is dispatched to the handler unconditionally.

Default: No condition is specified.

See also Expressions.

"handler": Handler reference, required

Dispatch to this handler if the condition yields true.

Provide either the name of a Handler object defined in the heap, or an inline Handler configuration object.

See also Handlers.

Example

This example intercepts the response if it is equal to 200 and executes the LoginRequestHandler. This filter might be used in a login flow where the request for the login page must go through to the target, but the response should be intercepted in order to send the login form to the application. This is typical for scenarios where there is a hidden value or cookie returned in the login page, which must be sent in the login form:

{
    "name": "SwitchFilter",
    "type": "SwitchFilter",
    "config": {
        "onResponse": [
            {
                "condition": "${response.status.code == 200}",
                "handler": "LoginRequestHandler"
            }
        ]
    }
}
