Remove Request Headers

Ambassador Edge Stack can remove a list of HTTP headers that would be sent to the upstream from the request.

The remove_request_headers Attribute

The remove_request_headers attribute takes a list of keys used to match to the header.

remove_request_headers can be set either in a Mapping or using ambassador Module defaults.

Mapping Example

---
apiVersion: getambassador.io/v2
kind: Mapping
metadata:
name: quote-backend
spec:
prefix: /backend/
remove_request_headers:
- authorization
service: quote

will drop the header with key authorization.

apiVersion: getambassador.io/v2
kind: Module
metadata:
name: ambassador
spec:
config:
defaults:
httpmapping:
remove_request_headers:
- authorization
---
apiVersion: getambassador.io/v2
kind: Mapping
metadata:
name: quote-backend1
spec:
prefix: /backend1/
service: quote
---
apiVersion: getambassador.io/v2
kind: Mapping
metadata:
name: quote-backend2
spec:
prefix: /backend2/
service: quote

This is the same as the mapping example, but the headers will be removed for both mappings.
