How to limit access to an URL with query parameters

    my experience with apache is ~ 0 and I need your help. My problem is the following:

    I need that an URL is accessible only for some defined users. In the URL there is a query parameter and that is the discriminator.

    The URL could be something like this:


    Googling a little I came upon this possible solution:

    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} "/my-app/view/myView[.]xhtml.*"
    RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} myQueryParam=allUsers
    RewriteRule .* - [E=no_auth_required:1]

    <LocationMatch "/my-app/view/myView[.]xhtml.*">

    Require uniqueID user1ID user2ID


    Between xhtml and ? could come additional strings too, therefor the *

    This works but the problem is that it also denies the access to for ex. the link https://my.my.com/my-app/view/myView.xhtml?myQueryParam=somethingElse

    It seams that it doesn't bother the value of the query parameter...

    What do I miss?

    Thank you in advance.
