Redirecting and detecting URL keywords

CF:2016 | IIS10

 

I know this is a little more of an IIS question, but wondering if anybody can advise

 

I need to put keywords into a URL without using actual variables and then redirect and collect the keyword

 

Example:

https://SomeWebSite/discount1

 

The folder discount1 does not exist and that is the keyword I need to detect on a CFM page.

 

I guess I could set up a redirect on 404 errors, to go to a CFM page, and then use CFM to pick up the refer information and then find the word in the URL.

 

After typing this I tried it out using a redirect in IIS for 404 errors, setting it to removed with a 302 redirect to an absolute URL, a CFM page. In the CFM page I displayed the HTTP_REFERER only to see that it was blank, so it's not passed on and therefore I can't extract the discount1 at the end of the URL

 

I'm wondering if anybody knows how to retain the original URL or how I should do it so that it actually works.

 

Thanks

I managed to resolve this myself. I did a dump of all CGI variables and found that the original URL was indeed present in a couple of places

 

All I needed to do was strip out a little to get to the part I wanted.

#right(cgi.QUERY_STRING,(len(cgi.QUERY_STRING)-37))#
