URL Rewrite Map with IIS Manager

A rewrite map is a feature that can be used inside the rewrite rules to generate a replacement URL during rewriting. In this article I will give you a step by step guide on how to set up URL Rewrite Map with IIS Manager 7


Rewrite maps are very useful if you have a several sets of rewrite rules. Instead of making more rewrite rules, you can easily put all the new mappings into the rewrite map as keys and values. In other words, you can take the normal URL and enter the replacement URL.
