Issue/Introduction

 

When running a Web Agent, one might like to know if there's a way to
get ignored :

  /myApp/favicon.ico

and at the same time

  /myApp/favicon.ico/ 

not ignored and fully protected by using ignoreext and ignoreurl ?

 

Resolution

 

Using combination of ACO ignoreext and overrideignoreextfilter will
allow to get this behavior :

  ignoreext='.class,.gif,.jpg,.jpeg,.png,.fcc,.scc,.sfcc,.ccc,.ntc,.ico'.
  overrideignoreextfilter = /myApp/favicon.ico/

The Web Agent log entries show: 

  - /myApp/favicon.ico is autoauthorized 
  - /myApp/favicon.ico/test is not autoauthorized
