Feature: Cache Manager Action ACL

  • Goal: A Request-type ACL which matches against the action name of a cache manager request.

  • Status: not started

  • ETA: unknown

  • Version:

  • Developer:


Squid-3.2 cache manager access through http:// and https:// URLs requires a way to control which actions are visible to which users.

At present regex patterns can be used on the path portion of these requests. But this involves the administrator knowing the internal path representations for cache manager requests and compounding multiple ACLs to identify the manager requests from other traffic.

It would be good to provide a simpler ACL which tests seamlessly for manager request properties and then checks only the action name portion of the URL. Ignoring additional parameters and internal 'well-known' path locations.
