Require client certificate for backend routing

    Hi,

    is it possible to configure the API Gateway to present a client certificate for the backend routing connection?

    I checked the different settings of the "Route via HTTP(S)" assertion, but can't find any point, where you can specify a client certificate. Is this not supported at all or is this hidden somewhere else?

    Thank you!

     

    Ciao Stefan

    Hi Darren,

    thanx for the quick and useful help. I just checked the assertion Settings (double click) before, but don't tried the context menu (right click).

    Not very intuitive
