FortiWeb directing traffic based on virtual folders?


Is it possible to set up the cloud-hosted FortiWeb  to direct (Endpoint)  URLs (Say we call them folders) to the origin as follows


(Endpoint) --> Send traffic to Domain A on Origin server

(Endpoint) -->Send traffic to Domain B on Origin server

(Endpoint) --> Send traffic to Domain C on Origin server


(Or could be different Origin servers if that works).


We currently have domains in Microsoft IIS on-premise we want to move and wondering if we can manage the concept of virtual folders through fortiweb to go to different back end domains.

Having spent some more time on this I think the terminology I need Is to "Rewrite Host" under Rewriting Requests.


However, using this I would rewrite the host based on the URL e.g.

Action: Rewrite Host

Rewrite From: (.*)/folder1

Rewrite To:

But Fortiweb cloud doesn't work when I include a path after the "Rewrite From"

Is this supported or are there other options?
