Subject Re: Following Origin Redirect

Below are the settings you would need. Both these settings should be overridable on master
(not sure, about 5.3.x). 



Also, ATS should stream the final (after redirect) response to the end user immediately, in
parallel to storing the response in cache (this is the default behavior of ATS).

Version - ATS 5.3.2

Anyone have any pointers on configuring ATS to follow HTTP redirects(301/302) handed by the
origin server ?

The goal here is to have ATS follow the redirect on behalf of the client, instead of sending
the redirect back downstream.

This seems doable in Lua(via luacurl .. ts.fetch not available in 5.3.2), but I cant seem
to 'restart' the transaction after reading the origin response headers. 
Another issue I see here is being able to stream the final(after the redirect) response immediately
back to the end user(read_while_writer).

In this current implementation(or with my limited understanding), it seems I would have to
first store the final response before I could send back downstream.

I have seen similar approaches with varnish and nginx however implementation is very hacky..
which is to be expected as this is very unconventional and probably against spec.

Thanks in advance.
