    we have an application that needs to be put behind a reverse proxy for security reasons. The URLs in the app all need to point to the reverse proxy URLs. However, the URLs for web resources and the dynamically generated JavaScript URLs point to the backend server, so a lot of functionality is broken. We have no possibility to modify reverse proxy rules.

    Is there any way to modify or rewrite  the dynamically generated URLs and the web resource URLs ? We tried intervening the page rendering, some stuff works, but a lot of other things do not.

    Hi Oscar,

    For our controls to work, all requests must return successfully. There is no built-in way of using proxies, especially for WebResource requests. Generally, the webresource requests should be excluded from the proxy configuration if possible.

    In your case, what I can suggest is using the CDNs (for scripts, for skins and the built-in MS AJAX CDN) as much as possible to reduce the number of webresoruce requests to the absolute minimum. Note that some controls require webresources for other purposes - dialogs, spell checking, file upload and this cannot be avoided, so such features will not work for your setup.
