Redirect or Rewriter?


Okay, so I need to intercept an application (origin web server) "logout"
page and make it do the /AGLogout instead.

Would I be better off doing this via an Auth Policy with redirect or
some other NAM policy?

OR

Do a rewriter policy (and if so which one, a word/character, etc)?


So for example, if you click "Logout", the back-end app does something
like:

https://www.something.com/OA_HTML/FMSLogout1.jsp

I need to basically "redirect/convert" that to the NAM /AGLogout

Since this is an Oracle application, I cannot change the Oracle
code/HTML content without incurring the wrath of "no support".

I've done it both ways. I tend to prefer auth policy. At least in my head it seems like this
should perform better. I generally do a rewriter when there is a chance someone will book mark
something.

So question about the auth policy

Do you do something like this?

Define a resource with a path of say:
https://www.something.com/OA_HTML/FMSLogout1.jsp

And assign an Auth policy that basically just has a redirect of:
Go somewhere else

??
