Global Rule


A Plugin configuration can be bound directly to a Route, a Service or a Consumer. But what if we want a Plugin to work on all requests? This is where we register a global Plugin with Global Rule.


The example below shows how you can use the limit-count Plugin on all requests:

curl -X PUT \
https://{apisix_listen_address}/apisix/admin/global_rules/1 \
-H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
-H 'X-API-KEY: edd1c9f034335f136f87ad84b625c8f1' \
-d '{
"plugins": {
"limit-count": {
"time_window": 60,
"policy": "local",
"count": 2,
"key": "remote_addr",
"rejected_code": 503

You can also list all the Global rules by making this request with the Admin API:

curl https://{apisix_listen_address}/apisix/admin/global_rules
