    I'd like to do a redirect or rewrite, not sure how.

    What I want is if someone clicks a link going to /policy/california-privacy-rights.html it allows it but if someone types in /policy/ that is redirects to /policy.html

    policy is a folder containing california-privacy-rights.html and policy.html is in the / folder

    I tried a 302 redirect but that redirects everything and I don't want that, I only want to redirect when they try and browse the root of the policy folder that doesn't include and index.html file.

    Figured it out, for anyone else that might be looking for the same thing...

    Drop it in the privacy directory and when you browse /privacy it'll redirect to /privacy.html but allow anything else such as /privacy/california-privacy-rights.html

    Built in HTTP Redirection redirects everything, but URL Rewrite just redirects the single path as I was looking for.

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <rule name="Redirect Rule 1" stopProcessing="true">
    <match url="(.*)" />
    <add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchType="IsDirectory" />
    <action type="Redirect" url="/privacy.html{R:1}" redirectType="Found" />
