Requestly’s Replace String rule allows users to replace a string (or matching pattern) with another string in the url. It looks to be very simple but it can achieve very complex use cases:
- Switching Domains
- Change Query Parameter Values
- Fix broken/updated URLs
- Pattern Matching in Replace Rule
Using Requestly to change the domain of the URL
In this example we will change the domain of the url
https://stackexchange.com with stackoverflow.
- Download and Install the Requestly Chrome extension.
- Click on
Create your first rule.
- Then select
Replace Stringand click on
- We’ll be replacing the substring
exchangein the Replace field and
overflowin the With field.
- Save the rule.
You can try it yourself by importing this rule , also fiddle around and replace different substrings of the URL.
