Support for Request Validation

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.
