  • I'd like to change the setting of timeout when communicating from APIcast to backend API. Specifically, I'd like to extend proxy_read_timeout. How can this be done?
  • How can i set my timeout setting? Currently our API takes a few minutes to respond, but this is OK with our developers, we just need 3scale APIcast to not time out.
