Is this working for you? How did you "install" your pretender token?

The Prerender token is simply added as a custom header.

       <httpProtocol>
            <customHeaders>
                <add name="X-Prerender-Token" value="XXXXXXXXXXXXX" />

This worked for us. Our rewrite is as follows:

        <rule name="Seo rewrite rule" stopProcessing="true">
          <serverVariables>
            <set name="HTTP_X_PRERENDER_TOKEN" value="[...your token...]" />
          </serverVariables>
          <conditions>
            <add input="{QUERY_STRING}" pattern="(.*)_escaped_fragment_=(.*)" />
          </conditions>
          <action type="Rewrite" url="http://service.prerender.io/http://{HTTP_HOST}{REQUEST_URI}" appendQueryString="false" />
        </rule>

As far as the "allowableServerVariables", we handled this through the IIS and clicking either the Default Web Site of the Site itself, then clicking the URL Rewrite module icon, then select View Server Variables, and add the HTTP_X_PRERENDER_TOKEN variable name to the list.

With this in place, we were now able to append the escaped_fragment querystring to our urls and see the rewritten results after coming back through the server. You should also be able to verify in your Account page on PreRender.io that the pages are being cached.

HTH,
Randy

By default, you can't do a proxy request, that's why I needed to enable proxy in the Azure Website.
I created an applicationHost.xdt file with the following content, here is more info.

<?xml version="1.0"?>  
<configuration xmlns:xdt="http://schemas.microsoft.com/XML-Document-Transform">  
    <system.webServer>  
        <proxy xdt:Transform="InsertIfMissing" enabled="true" preserveHostHeader="true"  
        reverseRewriteHostInResponseHeaders="false" />  
    </system.webServer>  
</configuration> 

I still see "You need to install your Prerender token before you can start viewing recache stats. Click here to install the token on your platform." on the prerender site, but I do get the desired results.
I guess it's something with the headers.
I couldn't get setting the header working like @MMRandy in Azure, even though I did add the header to the same xdt file to allow it.
I've posed a question on the Azure MSDN forum about it.

@krusk , I got it working on Azure.
You have to upload this file one level lower than my site root.
You add files outside your site at yourwebsite.scm.azurewebsites.net > Debug Console > CMD .
This file (applicationHost.xdt) will enable ARR and insert the prerender header to the allowed variables.

<?xml version="1.0"?>  
<configuration xmlns:xdt="http://schemas.microsoft.com/XML-Document-Transform">  
    <system.webServer>

        <rewrite>
            <allowedServerVariables>
                <add name="X-Prerender-Token" xdt:Transform="InsertIfMissing" />
            </allowedServerVariables>
        </rewrite>

My web.config looks like this.
The second rule is for html5 mode.

Now it's important to restart your website! When the first request comes in, the xdt will execute the transformations.

You can follow your logstream to see if they are added at https://yourwebsite.scm.azurewebsites.net/api/logstream

Ok, I finally got this working. Holy moly.....this was difficult.
I am putting all my steps into this post (and deleting the older posts)

The first thing to be aware of is you can't test this locally.

You can't use X-Prerender-Token in your server variables because they get transformed into response headers which is no good, we need the request headers.
You can read about it here: http://www.iis.net/learn/extensions/url-rewrite-module/url-rewrite-module-20-configuration-reference#Setting_Server_Variables

Your Redirect rule should look like this:

<rule name="SEO" stopProcessing="true">
  <match url="^(?!.*?(\.js|\.css|\.xml|\.html|\.less|\.png|\.jpg|\.jpeg|\.gif|\.pdf|\.doc|\.txt|\.ico|\.rss|\.zip|\.mp3|\.rar|\.exe|\.wmv|\.doc|\.avi|\.ppt|\.mpg|\.mpeg|\.tif|\.wav|\.mov|\.psd|\.ai|\.xls|\.mp4|\.m4a|\.swf|\.dat|\.dmg|\.iso|\.flv|\.woff|\.ttf|\.m4v|\.svg|\.torrent))(.*)" ignoreCase="false" />
  <conditions logicalGrouping="MatchAny">
    <add input="{HTTP_USER_AGENT}" pattern="baiduspider|facebookexternalhit|twitterbot|googlebot" />
    <add input="{QUERY_STRING}" pattern="(.*)_escaped_fragment_=(.*)" ignoreCase="false" />
  </conditions>
  <action type="Rewrite" url="http://service.prerender.io/{HTTP_HOST}/{R:0}" appendQueryString="false" />
  <serverVariables>
    <set name="HTTP_X_PRERENDER_TOKEN" value="<your_token>" />
  </serverVariables>
</rule>

When you add this, you will probably get a 500 error when using ?escaped_fragment= in the querystring, this will be because you need to update your applicationHost.xdt which sits in the directory below your wwwroot folder (http://ruslany.net/2014/05/using-azure-web-site-as-a-reverse-proxy/ is a good explanation)

Your applicationHost.xdt should look like this:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<configuration xmlns:xdt="http://schemas.microsoft.com/XML-Document-Transform">
  <system.webServer>
    <proxy xdt:Transform="InsertIfMissing" enabled="true" preserveHostHeader="false" reverseRewriteHostInResponseHeaders="false" />
    <rewrite>
      <allowedServerVariables>
        <add name="HTTP_X_PRERENDER_TOKEN" xdt:Transform="InsertIfMissing" />
      </allowedServerVariables>
    </rewrite>
  </system.webServer>
</configuration>

When you have added the applcationHost.xdt you MUST restart the server (in azure, just click the website and on the bottom click restart).

If you have done everything correctly, in your account on prerender.io you will see no notices asking you to install your key. If you do, then something is wrong.

One final note: If your project is both the WebAPI and an AngularJS application, you will have to split it into two. The routing in WebConfig interferes with your rewrite rules. I have tried everything and the only solution was to separate the.

I hope this helps someone else.

@r3plica I tried out your example, and the notice is finally removed on the prerender site. I did have to put "http" in front of {HTTP_HOST}/{R:0} in order to make it work.

<action type="Rewrite" url="http://service.prerender.io/http://{HTTP_HOST}{REQUEST_URI}" appendQueryString="false" />

The changes were very minor and I don't really understand why the notice is gone now, but the previous code didn't.
Thanks!

Incase anyone was also not using Azure and hitting constant 404 errors after setting everything up as per the suggestions above, I was able to get it working by installing the IIS ARR Module, then going into the IIS Rewrite rules for my site in IIS itself and when attempting to add a rule of type "Reverse Proxy Rule", it asked me if I wanted to enable reverse proxy, clicked yes. You dont need to actually add a rule, as now the ARR reverse proxy feature is installed.

For those of you who struggled for a long time to get the reverse proxy element of this working and still couldn't figure it out, I opted for the "poor man's solution" using a web request to retrieve the compiled HTML from the hosted prerender.io service

n.b. You CAN test this method locally and it will work :)

Web config rewrite rule:

<rewrite>
      <rules>
        <clear />
        <rule name="Prerender" enabled="true" stopProcessing="true">
          <match url="^(?!.*?(\.js|\.css|\.xml|\.html|\.less|\.png|\.jpg|\.jpeg|\.gif|\.pdf|\.doc|\.txt|\.ico|\.rss|\.zip|\.mp3|\.rar|\.exe|\.wmv|\.doc|\.avi|\.ppt|\.mpg|\.mpeg|\.tif|\.wav|\.mov|\.psd|\.ai|\.xls|\.mp4|\.m4a|\.swf|\.dat|\.dmg|\.iso|\.flv|\.woff|\.ttf|\.m4v|\.svg|\.torrent))(.*)" ignoreCase="false" />
          <conditions logicalGrouping="MatchAll">
            <add input="{HTTP_USER_AGENT}" pattern="baiduspider|facebookexternalhit|twitterbot|googlebot" />
            <add input="{QUERY_STRING}" pattern="(.*)_escaped_fragment_=(.*)" ignoreCase="false" />
          </conditions>
          <!-- Rewrite the URL to a controller in our application that will do all of the prerendering legwork -->
          <action type="Rewrite" url="/Home/Snapshot?path={REQUEST_URI}" appendQueryString="false" />
        </rule>
        <rule name="angularjs" stopProcessing="true">
          <match url=".*" />
          <conditions logicalGrouping="MatchAll">
            <add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchType="IsFile" negate="true" />
            <add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchType="IsDirectory" negate="true" />
            <add input="{REQUEST_URI}" pattern="^/(api)" negate="true" />
          </conditions>
          <action type="Rewrite" url="/" />
        </rule>
    </rules>
</rewrite>

Then in a controller of your choice (I opted for Home), create a new Snapshot action as below:

public ActionResult Snapshot(string path)
{
    string fullUrl = default(string);
    string host = "https://example.com"; // CHANGE THIS or use Request.Url.Host
    fullUrl = string.Format("{0}{1}", host, path);

    string prerenderIoUrl = string.Format("{0}{1}", "http://service.prerender.io/", fullUrl);

    string prerenderIoApiKey = "[YOUR TOKEN HERE]";

    var request = WebRequest.Create(prerenderIoUrl);
    request.Headers.Add("X-Prerender-Token", prerenderIoApiKey);

    var response = request.GetResponse();
    var responseStream = response.GetResponseStream();
    var reader = new StreamReader(responseStream);
    string html = reader.ReadToEnd();

    reader.Close();
    response.Close();
    return Content(html);            
}

Ensure you have put your Prerender token and host values into the code above.

Test by changing your user agent in Chrome dev tools to googlebot and appending ?_escaped_fragment_= onto the URL of your site. When you right click and view "Page Source", it should have fully rendered your HTML between your ng-view tags. Also you can use Fiddler to see the outgoing request to the service.prerender.io url.

Have verified that this method is hitting my Prerender.io account and new pages are cached and previously cached pages are hit.

If anyone ever encounters this issue, I've tried the stuff above and got it working after many hours by mixing some things up.

1. In your Web App root directory (/site/wwwroot), add or update your web.config file with this:

<configuration>
  <system.webServer>     
    <rewrite>     
        <rules>
            <rule name="Prerender" stopProcessing="true">
                <serverVariables>
                    <set name="HTTP_X_PRERENDER_TOKEN" value="**YOUR TOKEN**" />
                </serverVariables>
                <match url="^(?!.*?(\.js|\.css|\.xml|\.less|\.png|\.jpg|\.jpeg|\.gif|\.pdf|\.doc|\.txt|\.ico|\.rss|\.zip|\.mp3|\.rar|\.exe|\.wmv|\.doc|\.avi|\.ppt|\.mpg|\.mpeg|\.tif|\.wav|\.mov|\.psd|\.ai|\.xls|\.mp4|\.m4a|\.swf|\.dat|\.dmg|\.iso|\.flv|\.m4v|\.torrent))(.*)" ignoreCase="false" />
                <conditions logicalGrouping="MatchAny">
                    <add input="{HTTP_USER_AGENT}" pattern="bingbot|googlebot|baiduspider|twitterbot|facebookexternalhit|rogerbot|linkedinbot|embedly|quora link preview|showyoubot|outbrain|pinterest|slackbot|vkShare|W3C_Validator" />
                </conditions>
                <action type="Rewrite" url="https://service.prerender.io/https://{HTTP_HOST}{REQUEST_URI}" appendQueryString="false" />
            </rule>
        </rules>
    </rewrite>

  </system.webServer>
</configuration>

2. In /site/ create a file named applicationHost.xdt and add this content:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<configuration xmlns:xdt="http://schemas.microsoft.com/XML-Document-Transform">
    <system.webServer>
        <proxy xdt:Transform="InsertIfMissing" enabled="true" preserveHostHeader="false" reverseRewriteHostInResponseHeaders="false" />
        <rewrite>
            <allowedServerVariables>
                <add name="HTTP_X_PRERENDER_TOKEN" xdt:Transform="InsertIfMissing" />
            </allowedServerVariables>
        </rewrite>
    </system.webServer>
</configuration>

**3. Restart your Web App service (click 'Stop' and 'Start', not only 'Restart').

4. Test with a tool like: https://technicalseo.com/tools/fetch-render/

Hope this helps someone.
