Designates an expression that refers to the ApplicationSwitch,

rather than the client or server.

This topic lists the expressions that are provided by this class.

CHECK_LIMIT(text_tidentifier_name)

Used for rate limiting.

Returns a boolean Result.

Parameters(expressions not allowed):

identifier_name -

                        Identifier Name

Returns: bool_at

CI_CALLOUT(ci_callout_bool cic)

Make a Content Inspection callout.

Returns a boolean result.

Parameters(expressions not allowed):

cic -

                        Name of Content Inspection callout that returns boolean result.

Returns: bool_at

CI_CALLOUT(ci_callout_num cic)

Make a Content Inspection callout.

Returns a number result.

Parameters(expressions not allowed):

cic -

                        Name of Content Inspection callout that returns number result.

Returns: num_at

CI_CALLOUT(ci_callout_text cic)

Make a Content Inspection callout.

Returns a text result.

Parameters(expressions not allowed):

cic -

                        Name of Content Inspection callout that returns text result.

CLIENT_EXPR(text_ts)

Evaluates a client expression.

Returns a boolean result.

Examples:

CLIENT_EXPR("client.av(Norton).exists")

add some more examples

Parameters(expressions not allowed):

s -

                        Client Expression

Returns: bool_at

ERROR

Returns the error encountered when performing the last

operation.

Returns: error_t

EVAL_CLASSIC_EXPR(classic_expr s)

Evaluate classic-style Citrix ADC expressions.

NOTE: use of Classic expressions is deprecated - use Default

(Advanced) expressions instead of this function.

The result of this evaluation can continued to be used

for further Advanced operations. This operation is intended to

be a bridge between traditional Citrix ADC expressions, which

we call "classic" expressions and the Advanced expressions. Both

inline and named classic expressions can be used as input.

Examples:

SYS.EVAL_CLASSIC_EXPR("ns_slowclient")

SYS.EVAL_CLASSIC_EXPR("REQ.SSL.CLIENT.CIPHER.BITS > 1000")

SYS.EVAL_CLASSIC_EXPR("url contains abc")

SYS.EVAL_CLASSIC_EXPR("REQ.IP.SOURCEIP == 10.102.1.61 -netmask 255.255.255.255")

SYS.EVAL_CLASSIC_EXPR("time >= *:30:00GMT")

SYS.EVAL_CLASSIC_EXPR("e1 || e2")

SYS.EVAL_CLASSIC_EXPR("REQ.HTTP.URLLEN > 50")

SYS.EVAL_CLASSIC_EXPR("dayofweek == wedGMT")

Parameters(expressions not allowed):

s -

                        Classic Expression

Returns: bool_at

HTTP_CALLOUT(http_callout_bool hc)

Returns: bool_at

HTTP_CALLOUT(http_callout_num hc)

Make a http callout.

Returns a number result.

Parameters(expressions not allowed):
