Subject Re: [users@httpd] Using requestheader to insert new header=environmentvariable_value
Date Thu, 23 Feb 2012 17:46:38 GMT
Hi all, let me see.

This is the sentence that i'm using now in httpd.conf, following
document http://httpd.apache.org/docs/current/mod/mod_headers.html

RequestHeader set PF_AUTH_CORP_ID_NEW env=%{PF_AUTH_SUBJECT}e

And this is what is can see in Wireshark

PF_AUTH_CORP_ID_NEW: env=(null)
PF_AUTH_SUBJECT: a156168

Do you know if this sentence is right, because assigned value is
unexpected for me, viewing value of environment variable that i'm
using

Thanks for your time

Regards,
Andres
