    Could someone confirm if there is support for comporession (gzip/deflate) on the API Gateway (version 8.4)?  I'm running into an issue where a backend service is performing compression properly when called directly.  However, when the call runs through the gateway, the response is not compressed.

    gzip is supported, but deflate is not, so far as per I know.

    I think there is a tactical assertion for this available at support.

    Hi Alejandro,


    RemcoDekker is correct, you can request the 'Gzip tactical assertion' from support for inflate/deflate support.
