Description

Hey all!

Here's my server block with bug/workaround commenting:

server {
    listen 443 ssl http2;
    server_name x.com;

    ssl on;
    ssl_certificate path/fullchain.pem;
    ssl_certificate_key path/privkey.pem;

    location / {
        ### BUG ###
        # set $arg_param value; DOES NOT WORK
        
        ### WORKAROUND ###
        if ($args ~ (.*)&param=oldvalue(.*)) {
            set $args $1$2&param=value # WORKS
        }

        proxy_pass https://remote-url.com/;
        proxy_cache            remote_cache;
        proxy_cache_lock on;
        proxy_cache_revalidate on;
        proxy_cache_valid      200  7d;
        proxy_cache_use_stale  error timeout invalid_header updating http_502 http_503 http_504;
        proxy_hide_header Access-Control-Allow-Origin;
        include conf.d/shared/cors.conf;
    }
}

set &arg_param does not change the value of &param=

Thanks.

Yes, and it was never meant to. If I recall correctly, the only variables which are set with side effects are $args and $limit_rate. In all other cases the only effect of set is that the variable value is changed, but not properties the variable is calculated from.
