Server_group { } directive?

Hey there,

I was reading about global if’s / locations and why it isn’t possible.

I would like to suggest the following, maybe it’s been suggested
before, who knows:

server_group {

this if will be duplicated to each of the server { } configs in

this server_group
if ( $http_user_agent ~* Googlebot ) {
return 403;
}

server {
server_name srv1.example.com;
}

server {
server_name srv2.example.com;
}

}

It’s just a way for me to keep the server { } configs very simple,
runtime it should be just like the if would appear twice. With
includes this makes more sense:

nginx.conf:
server_group {

this if will be duplicated to each of the server { } configs in

this server_group
if ( $http_user_agent ~* Googlebot ) {
return 403;
}

include protected-servers/*.conf;
}

protected-servers/srv1.conf:
server {
server_name srv1.example.com;
}

protected-servers/srv2.conf:
server {
server_name srv2.example.com;
}

This way I can enforce the servers in protected-server/*.conf to have
the googlebot check. Otherwise I would have to include a file in each
.conf file, which could lead to human mistakes.
