proxy-control

Description#

The proxy-control Plugin dynamically controls the behavior of the NGINX proxy.

IMPORTANT

This Plugin requires APISIX to run on APISIX-Base. See apisix-build-tools for more info.

Attributes#

NameTypeRequiredDefaultDescription
request_bufferingbooleanFalsetrueWhen set to true, the Plugin dynamically sets the proxy_request_buffering directive.

Enabling the Plugin#

The example below enables the Plugin on a specific Route:

curl -i http://127.0.0.1:9180/apisix/admin/routes/1 \
-H 'X-API-KEY: edd1c9f034335f136f87ad84b625c8f1' -X PUT -d '
{
"uri": "/upload",
"plugins": {
"proxy-control": {
"request_buffering": false
}
},
"upstream": {
"type": "roundrobin",
"nodes": {
"127.0.0.1:1980": 1
}
}
}'

Example usage#

The example below shows the use case of uploading a big file:

curl -i http://127.0.0.1:9080/upload -d @very_big_file

It's expected to not find a message "a client request body is buffered to a temporary file" in the error log.

Disable Plugin#

To disable the proxy-control Plugin, you can delete the corresponding JSON configuration from the Plugin configuration. APISIX will automatically reload and you do not have to restart for this to take effect.

curl -i http://127.0.0.1:9180/apisix/admin/routes/1 \
-H 'X-API-KEY: edd1c9f034335f136f87ad84b625c8f1' -X PUT -d '
{
"uri": "/upload",
"upstream": {
"type": "roundrobin",
"nodes": {
"127.0.0.1:1980": 1
}
}
}'
