This is really a question more suited for the Web Development forum, imho.

And to make sure I understand your question: do you want to be able to type "dev" in your browser's address bar and be automatically redirected to https://servername/portal?

correct. type dev in the browser, and takes me to https://servername/portal

That sounds more like something your browser would deal with, than a web server would, if "/dev" is exactly all what you propose typing into the address bar.

If you meant (i.e.) http://localhost/dev, then you could certainly use a ReWrite rule to get to the address you want.

let me rephrase, my need again. currently, i type https://servername/lawsongeek/portal, works fine. my goal is:
if i type https://servername or https://servername/lawsongeek, it should take me to https://servername/lawsongeek/portal
