Static router

Overview

API Gateway uses the information configured in the Static Router filter to connect to a machine that is hosting a web service. You should use the Static Router filter in conjunction with a Rewrite URL filter to specify the path to send the message to on the remote machine. For more details, see Rewrite URL.

Depending on how 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.

Configuration

Configure the following fields on the Static Router configuration window:

Name:
Enter a name for the filter.

Host:
Enter the host name or IP address of the remote machine that is hosting the destination web service.

Port:
Enter the port on which the remote service is listening.

HTTP:
Select this option if API Gateway should send the message to the remote machine over plain HTTP.

HTTPS :
Select this option if API Gateway should send the message to the remote machine over a secure channel using SSL. You can use a Connection filter to configure API Gateway to mutually authenticate to the remote system.
