Attributes

Name Required Default Description Example
maxBodyLength false - The maximal length of a message body. 10485760

Explanation

Note that due to the streaming nature of Membrane, a request header may already have been passed on to the backend, when the condition "body.length > X" becomes true. In this case, further processing is aborted and the connection to the backend is simply closed.

To apply <limit/> only to either requests or responses, wrap it in a corresponding tag: <request><limit ... /></request>.
