iRules & Parameters

218 Views, 3 Replies

I want to reference parameters in an iRule in such a way that the value of parameter A determines the value of parameter b.

 

In this case i want to reference the dimensional height of a UC beam into a parameter <UC_HEIGHT> and then allow this to determine the value of uc designation size in a parameter <UC_DESIGNATION>

 

This would be useful because instead of typing the uc designation of a beam into the part description or matl. list i can just reference a parameter.

 

Is this possible? Iv tried an iRule along the lines of

 

if parameter (uc height) = xxx.x then parameter (uc designation) = 'custom test'

 

but get error messages

 

Cheers,

 

Sandy

* Use "End IF', not "ENDIF"

 

Pasting into IE erased the space.
