Batcher and Auth Caching Policies interfere with each other

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • When combined with the Batcher Policy, the Auth Caching Policy is not behaving as expected:
    • In Allow mode, the gateway does not authorize new requests if the backend-listener component is unavailable.
    • In Strict mode, denied requests do not cause the corresponding cache entries to be invalidated.
