EQL Configuration Mode Commands

EQL configuration mode allows you to configure an extension qualifier list (EQL). This list is a collection of file extensions for content requests joined together through content rules. The CSS uses this list to identify which requests to send to a service.

To access EQL configuration mode, use the eql command from any configuration mode except ACL, boot, DQL, group, header-field-group, NQL, and owner configuration modes. The prompt changes to (config-eql [name]). You can also use this command from EQL mode to access another EQL. For information about commands available in this mode, see the following commands.

Use the no form of this command to delete an existing extension list.

eql eql_name

no eql existing_eql_name

Syntax Description


Name of a new extension list you want to create or of an existing list. Enter an unquoted text string with no spaces and a maximum length of 31 characters. To see a list of existing EQL names, enter:
