Undertow subsystem filter-ref does not resolve property expression for the predicate attribute in JBoss EAP 7

Solution Unverified - Updated -


Undertow subsystem should support the property expression for the predicate attribute of <filter-ref>. However, it does not resolve and expand the specified property expression.

For example, I have the following configuration:

  <subsystem xmlns="urn:jboss:domain:undertow:10.0" ...>
      <server name="default-server">
          <host name="default-host" alias="localhost">
              <filter-ref name="request-limit-filter" predicate="not path-prefix('/${env.FOOBAR}/healthcheck')"/>
              <filter-ref name="dump-request-filter" predicate="path-prefix('/${my.predicate.path.test}')"/>
          <request-limit name="request-limit-filter" max-concurrent-requests="10" queue-size="1"/>
          <expression-filter name="dump-request-filter" expression="dump-request"/>

Then, JBoss EAP 7 starts with the following environment variable and system property:

FOOBAR=example ./bin/standalone.sh -Dmy.predicate.path.test=test

However, the dump-request filter does not trigger even if I send a request to http://localhost:8080/test/ and the request-limit filter also affects http://localhost:8080/example/healthcheck.
