Description

This example configuration doesn't work as desired - backend receives literal request for "/api/v1/documents/$1$is_args$args".

    location ~ ^/uploads/documents/(.+)$ {
        alias /volume/data/documents/$1;
        auth_request /auth/documents/$1$is_args$args;
        auth_request_set $auth_status $upstream_status;
    }

    location ^~ /auth/ {
        internal;
        proxy_pass http://back:8080/api/v1/;
        proxy_pass_request_body off;
        proxy_redirect off;
        proxy_http_version 1.1;
        proxy_set_header X-Original-Uri $request_uri;
        proxy_set_header Content-Length "";
        proxy_set_header Host $host;
        proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
    }

This is highly inconvenient.

Variables are not supported by the auth_request directive. Note that when a directive supports variables in a particular parameter, this is explicitly documented - see, for example, the auth_request_set directive description: "The value may contain variables..."

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
