    It doesn't make sense.

    Usually only if the client sends the header Accept-Encoding: gzip, then the server may compress the response and return the content-encoding: gzip.


    So, it's better to do it on client side.

    Or, maybe removing the Accept-Encoding header on gateway before routing to downstream could work, too.


    The header assertion can change/remove a header,

    NOTE that the content-encoding header indicates how the response body encoded, they need to be matched, you cannot just simply change/remove the header.
