When using Property Manager with Net Storage, how do I force directory paths to have a trailing space

I have a property manager configuration that only uses Net Storage to serve content.  I need to force all requests link http://site.com/path to http://site.com/path/

 

This is required to keep the client's browser happy.  My testing has shown that without a trailing slash "/" the browser treats the page as if it is in the root of the site.

 

For the URL http://site.com/premier, I added the redirect rule shown below.  For a few more URLs I can simply add more copies of this rule.

 

However, this solution doesn't scale beyond a few directories and any change requires an Akamai configuration change.

In Apache the solution to this problem is to add the following Apache rewrite rule:

 

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME}  -d

RewriteRule ^(.+[^/])$ $1/  [R]

 

Unfortunately we can't check if the path is a directory in Property Manager because Property Manager is abstracted from that information.

 

Is there a way to apply some regular expression to the path and if the path "looks" like a directory then append a trailing slash if one doesn't already exist?

 

Thank you,

John
