If you do not use split tunneling, Access Policy Manager processes all portal access URLs through the rewriting engine. You can specify a URL pattern using the following syntax:scheme: //host[:port]/path. You can also use wildcards such as the asterisk ( * ) to denote any sequence of characters and the question mark ( ? ) for any single character. Access Policy Manager rewrites links in all pages specified forRewrite.
