AuthService settings

A Mapping can pass these settings along to an AuthService. This is helpful to allow these specific configurations to apply only to certain Mappings and not globally.

Bypass authentication

An AuthService can be disabled for a specific Mapping with the bypass_auth attribute. This will tell Ambassador Edge Stack to allow all requests for that Mapping through without interacting with the external auth service. This could be helpful, for example, for a public API.

bypass_auth: true

Context extensions

The auth_context_extensions attribute will pass the given values along to the AuthService when authentication happens. The values are arbitrary key value pairs formatted as strings.

auth_context_extensions:
foo: bar
baz: zing

More information is available on the Envoy documentation on external authentication.
