Default request actions

Those admins who have access to an Airlock Gateway can import the Default mapping template in the Configuration Center to have a visual representation of the default settings.

Action Name
Description
Default
(default) Request header whitelist
All headers not explicitly contained in the whitelist of well-known headers are removed.
disabled
(default) Request header blacklist
Some headers known to be problematic are removed.
enabled
(default) Translate Host header
The value in the incoming host header is replaced by the back-end host. Rewriting the host header may be necessary if the application server needs the back-end hostname in the header instead of the external name (e.g. for name-based virtual hosts in the back-end).
enabled
(default) Translate Referer header
The incoming referer header is rewritten to match the back-end protocol/host/URL. Rewriting the referer may be necessary if the application interprets the referer field but is not reverse-proxy compatible.
enabled
(default) Translate Origin header
The incoming origin header is rewritten to match the back-end protocol/host/URL. Rewriting the origin may be necessary if the application interprets the origin field but is not reverse-proxy compatible.
enabled
(default) Add X-Forwarded-For header
Adds an X-Forwarded-For header to preserve the original client IP for back-ends.
enabled
(default) Add X-Forwarded-Proto header
Adds an X-Forwarded-Proto header to preserve the original protocol for back-ends.
