Connection

The Connection filter makes the connection to the remote web service. It relies on connection details that are set by the other filters in the Routing category. Because the Connection filter connects out to other services, it negotiates the SSL handshake involved in setting up a mutually authenticated secure channel.

Depending on how the API Gateway is perceived by the client, different combinations of routing filters can be used. For an introduction to using the various filters in the Routing category, see Get started with routing configuration in the API Gateway Policy Developer Guide.
