  3. In the Actions panel, click Add Rule(s).

  4. Under Inbound rules, select Blank rule.

  6. i. Choose Matches the Pattern from the Requested URL drop-down list.

    ii. Choose Regular Expressions from the Using drop-down list.

    iii. In the Pattern field, enter ^$.

    iv. Check the Ignore case checkbox.
