Help with specific redirect to https

I’m trying to redirect anyURL that contains “UserLogin” (ie: Mediawiki)
to
https. This is what I’ve tried:

rewrite .UserLogin. https://domain.com$request_uri? permanent;

rewrite UserLogin https://domain.com$request_uri? permanent;

rewrite ^.UserLogin.$ https://domain.com$request_uri? permanent;

location ~* .UserLogin. {
return 301 https://domain.com$request_uri;
}

location ~ .UserLogin. {
return 301 https://domain.com$request_uri;
}

All of them have no effect. I’m running out of trial to match my error.
Can anyone tell me what I’m doing wrong? Thank you.

return 301 https://domain.com$request_uri;

}

location ~ .UserLogin. {
return 301 https://domain.com$request_uri;
}

At the http level:

map $uri $redirect_https {
default 0;
~^.UserLogin.$ 1;
}

Then at the server level do:

if ($redirect_https) {
return 301 https://$host$request_uri;
}

Can you show one example request that you would like to have redirected?

In nginx, the query string part of the request may not be matched when
you might expect it to be.

Thanks for your attempt, but this failed as well.

Thanks for your attempt, but this failed as well.

What’s the exact structure of your URI?

If it’s an argument then there are several approaches. For starters this
should work (but it’s ugly :slight_smile: to improve it we need further details).

map $request_uri $redirect_https {
default 0;
~*^.UserLogin.$ 1;
}

This is what it looks like via Mediawiki. The &returnto argument is
dependent on where the Login button is hit, and may or may not be
present.

http://domain.com/index.php?title=Special:UserLogin&returnto=Main+Page

In nginx terms, for this request, $uri = /index.php. $uri is what both
“rewrite” and “location” match against. That is why the first few
attempts
did not do what you hoped they would.

Some other variables which are available include:

$request_uri = /index.php?title=Special:UserLogin&returnto=Main+Page
$args = title=Special:UserLogin&returnto=Main+Page
$arg_title = Special:UserLogin

So you can do an exact or regex match of any of those in a “map” to set
another variable; or you can match directly in an “if”; and then return
the redirection.

All the best,

Try:

map $arg_title $redirect_https {
default 0;
Special:UserLogin 1;
}

Thank you Antonio. This works perfectly.
