    Hi Everybody!

    I work with Internet Information Services 10.0.14393.0

    I have a webservice website which is today called with an URL like 

    I want to call it with 

    I want people who use the former URL to be redirected to the new URL (including the webservice part).
    I setup a Redirection on IIS to http://mynewurl/ but when I call http://hostname/webservice1.ashx?id=yyyyy, I'm not redirected to 

    http://mynewurl/webservice1.ashx?id=yyyyy as I expected.

    How can I achieve this?

    Thanks a lot for your help.

    You could use below URL rewrite rule:

     <rule name="redirect to the new url" stopProcessing="true">
                        <match url="(.*)" />
                          <add input="{HTTP_HOST}" pattern="domain.com" />
                          <add input="{REQUEST_URI}" pattern="(.*)" />
                        <action type="Redirect" url="http://example.com{REQUEST_URI}" appendQueryString="false" />

    if you want to match any particular page then you could modify the condition like this:

     <add input="{REQUEST_URI}" pattern="webservice1.ashx" />

    Finally succeed in, creating an "empty" website for http call and  using http://mynewurl$V$Q in my Redirection rule.

    Thanks for your help Jalpa.
