Allow Direct Domain configuration for individual paths

Currently, you can configure Sauce Connect to send traffic for specific domains via the internet (rather then through Sauce Connect) using the direct-domain flag.  This only works for the domain, not the rest of the path.

 

Some users need to send traffic for specific paths over the Internet, not just specific domains.  At the moment, this isn't possible:

staging.someone.com/most_of_the_site => Through Sauce Connect

staging.someone.com/a_public_resource => Through Sauce Connect

 

There are cases where a specific path should actually be routed publicly; For instance, if an authentication engine is re-used between services and so is published publically, but the rest of the site is private:

staging.someone.com/most_of_the_site => Through Sauce Connect

staging.someone.com/authentication_engine => Direct via Internet

 

It would be useful to be able to pass the direct domains flag a regex, or series of regexes, for matching paths.

    I understand the use case, but it is not a common use case and we have not gotten this request from other customers. I am marking as Won't Implement. If we get more demand for this, we can reconsider.

    Best,
