APIcast strips request path for proxied https requests

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • APIcast strips the path from requests when the following conditions are met:
    • APIcast is configured with an https proxy for Upstream traffic
    • The Backend is configured with the Public Path: /
    • The Upstream is configured with https:// scheme and a path in its Private URL, as the following example: https://echo-api.3scale.net/some/path
  • Considered the configuration above, a request to https://<PUBLIC_BASE_URL>/foo/bar would be routed to https://echo-api.3scale.net/some/path instead of https://echo-api.3scale.net/some/path/foo/bar
