Indeed, %u is what I needed. Thanks.
What page did you find that in the reference guide? I can't find it.

Didn't know you could to this, but you can:
Fallback hosts accept the following (taken from tech.f5.com - a great site)
host name, as obtained from the Host: header of the client
Port, from the virtual server listening port
URI path, as obtained from a GET/POST request
Format strings for HTTP redirection
An example of a fallback host string is https://%h/sample.html. In this
string, specifying https as the protocol identifier causes the traffic to be
redirected to that protocol instead of the standard http protocol. Also, the
string sample.html causes the traffic to be redirected to that URI instead
of to the standard URI specified in the HTTP header, which would normally be
represented in the fallback string as %u.
html#1192188> 4.8 shows some sample redirection specifications, their
explanations, and their resulting redirection.
No redirection (preserve host name, port, and path)
change path, remove port
Specify https as protocol, remove port, change path
Change host name and port, preserve path
Specify https as protocol, change host name, port, and path
Specify ftp as protocol, change host name and path
Specify rtsp as protocol, change port and path
Glad you found this - I could use it myself.

Subject: [load balancing] F5 BIGIP codes for http 302
I've searched the docs for the codes for a fallback host in a pool.
I've created a fallback host, and found (just by trial and error) that
returns https://foo.bar.com/80 <https://foo.bar.com/80>
Does anyone know the other % codes?
I'm trying to get the F5 do to this:
Be pretty odd if a Cisco could do something a BIGIP could not.
