Download WSDL and Policy Documents

This section describes the ways to download a WSDL document or a policy document. The HTTP URIs described here can resolve a service WSDL, even if the initial service is deleted and a new service based on the same back-end service is added.

Configuring Gateway Pass-through
You can configure the
Layer7 API Gateway
to enable specific IP addresses and/or subnets to retrieve WS-Policy and/or WSDL documents without authentication. Requests originating from these exempted addresses pass through unchallenged, while requests from other addresses must provide credentials belonging to users authorized to consume the published service. If a service is accessible anonymously, you can download the corresponding WSDL and Policy documents without any credentials.
To configure a passthrough, modify the cluster property
service.passthroughdownloads
. By default, passthroughs are permitted only by the localhost.
