DevOps Handler

This Handler is designed to retrieve VHost configuration from the website itself, not from LL:NG configuration. Rules and headers are set in a rules.json file stored at the website root directory (ie http://website/rules.json). This file looks like:

  "rules": {
    "^/admin": "$uid eq 'admin'",
    "default": "accept"
  "headers": {
    "Auth-User": "$uid"

If this file is not found, the default rule “accept” is applied and just “Auth-User” header is sent (Auth-User => $uid).

No specific configuration is required except that:

  • you have to select DevOps handler type either with VHOSTTYPE environment variable or in VHost options

  • you can set in VHost options the loopback URL requested by the DevOps handler to retrieve /rules.json or use RULES_URL environment variable to set JSON file location. Default to<server-port>

  • HTTPS or redirection port can be set by using HTTP_REDIRECT or PORT_REDIRECT environment variables.


Note that DevOps handler will not compile rules.json if Safe Jail is not enabled.
