Using WebSockets and Ambassador

Ambassador makes it easy to access your services from outside your application, and this includes services that use WebSockets. Only a small amount of additional configuration is required, which is as simple as telling the Mapping to allow "upgrading" from the HTTP protocol to the "websocket" protocol:

allow_upgrade:
- websocket
