- Services: API Gateway
- Release Date: April 13, 2021
To prevent invalid requests being sent to back-end services unnecessarily, you can now use an API gateway to validate incoming requests.
Using an API gateway, you can set up validation request policies to check that:
- the request includes specific headers
- the request includes specific query parameters
- the request body is of a specific content type
You can control how an API gateway applies a validation request policy by specifying a validation mode for the policy.
