By adding Exceptions, you can easily target specific files on a given Scope that require unique treatment by a particular configuration policy. Exceptions allow you to do this without creating additional Scopes for files that require unique treatment.
Benefits of Exceptions
Exceptions allow you to target specific files based on at least one of the methods listed below.
- Header Filter - Target files based on a specific header. i.e. “Host:"
- Path Filter - Target files based on their specific path. i.e. “/path/to/file.ext"
- Response Code - Target files based on a specific response code. i.e. “301"
- Method of Action - Target files based on a specific method. i.e. “PUT"
