Reverse Proxy Service

Configuration

To configure a Web Reverse Proxy Service, attach a dictionary element to a path in your Web transport:

option description
type must be "reverseproxy"
host the host of the web server to proxy, e.g. "www.example.com".
port the port of the web server to proxy (default: 80)
path the base path to fetch data from with no trailing slashes (default: "")

Example

Here is how you define a Web Transport that do reverse proxy to example.com/my_path:

{
   "type": "web",
   "endpoint": {
      "type": "tcp",
      "port": 80
   },
   "paths": {
      "/": {
         "type": "reverseproxy",
         "host": "example.com",
         "path": "/my_path"
      }
   }
}

In this example, an incoming request POST /login would be proxied to domain example.com as POST /my_path/login
