Description

How can I use the Rules tab for redirecting traffic from one server to another?

Solution

To accomplish this scenario, use a basic redirect or a rule, which utilizes regex and regex variables.

Using a Basic Redirect

To redirect traffic from one server to another, implement a basic redirect rule.

Match: https://docs.telerik.com/fiddler-everywhere/introduction
Action: http://localhost:4000/fiddler-everywhere/introduction

Redirecting with Regex

To create more complex redirect rules, use the Fiddler Everywhere regex support for creating Match rules and Actions.

Match: regex:(.*)docs.telerik.com/(.*)
Action: http://localhost:4000/$2

In the previous example, two regex variables are automatically created. The second one will have as its value everything that comes after the last slash (/).

As a result, after applying the above rule, the following example endpoint

https://docs.telerik.com/fiddler-everywhere/user-guide/live-traffic/rules-builder

will be redirected to
