Prefix Regex

Using prefix and prefix_regex

When the prefix_regex attribute is set to true, Ambassador Edge Stack configures a regex route instead of a prefix route in Envoy. This means the entire path must match the regex specified, not only the prefix.

Example with a version in the URL

If the version is a path parameter and the resources are served by different services, then

kind: Mapping
name: qotm
prefix: "/(v1|v2)/qotm/.*"
prefix_regex: true
service: qotm

will map requests to both /v1 and /v2 to the qotm service.

Note that enclosing regular expressions in quotes can be important to prevent backslashes from being doubled.
