So I'm trying to set up a VMWare Unified Access Gateway reverse proxy. The issue I'm currently having is that then entire "Proxy Pattern" is sent to the internal host. What I'd really like to do is set the "Proxy Pattern" to (let's say) /proxy ... but not send that part to the internal host.

So for example, if I configure the Proxy Pattern to


then a URL


should be proxied to


Is that possible? If it is, I can't find it in the documentation that I have.

(Side note -- this is not an X-Y issue. I'm trying to workaround a UAG limitation where I need to proxy to a specific port while keeping the naming scheme intact.)


  • How did you configure the proxy pattern? Nov 27, 2023 at 14:15
  • @GeraldSchneider The proxy pattern is /proxy Nov 27, 2023 at 14:27
  • Have you tried setting it to /proxy(.*), as in the examples in the documentation? I would expect the capture group to act as the placeholder for the part that should be proxied. Nov 27, 2023 at 14:29
  • @GeraldSchneider No luck. I'm still seeing path=/proxy/ in my logs. Nov 27, 2023 at 15:06
  • @GeraldSchneider I just found docs.vmware.com/en/Unified-Access-Gateway/2306/… which says "Simple proxy patterns are case sensitive. Page links and proxy patterns must match. " Nov 27, 2023 at 15:12

I just found


which says

Simple proxy patterns are case sensitive. Page links and proxy patterns must match.

So apparently, what I want is not possible. :(

  • Why should it not be possible? Your examples show no problem with case sensitivity. Your question lacks details. Nov 27, 2023 at 16:54
  • @GeraldSchneider It says "Page links and proxy patterns must match.". My page links do not match my proxy patterns. Nov 28, 2023 at 17:08
