Try this:

        <rule name="MyRule" patternSyntax="ECMAScript" stopProcessing="true">
          <match url="^folder/Default.aspx$" />
              redirectType="Found" /> 

          <conditions logicalGrouping="MatchAny">
            <add input="{QUERY_STRING}" 
                 pattern="^&amp;variable1=eeee&amp;variable2=aaa$" />

            <add input="{QUERY_STRING}" 
                 pattern="^variable1=eeee&amp;variable2=aaa$" />

Set the redirectType attribute in the <action> element to one of:

  • Permanent for a 301 Permanent redirect
  • Found for a 302 Found redirect

This covers the possibility of the query string being:

&variable1=eeee&variable2=aaa - as per your example, with a leading ampersand

or with the leading ampersand:


If you just want a straight rewrite without doing a redirect then change the <action> element to:

<action type="Rewrite" 
        appendQueryString="false" />

If your IIS web site's root isn't an ASP.Net application, do you need to stick the rewrite rules in machine.config? – Remi Despres-Smyth Sep 23 '13 at 17:58
