Ambassador can add a dictionary of HTTP headers that can be added to each request that is passed to a service.
add_request_headers attribute is a dictionary of
value pairs. The
value can be a
object. When its an
object, the object should have a
value property, which is the actual header value, and the remaining attributes are additional envoy properties. Look at the example to see the usage.
Envoy dynamic values
%PROTOCOL% are supported, in addition to static values.
