The following cluster properties configure services on the .
The following cluster properties configure services on the
Layer7 API Gateway.
Controls policies with federated identity assertions. Value is a Boolean.
Controls which requestors can download WSDL and policy documents for disabled services. The values are:
Controls whether the Gateway collects service metrics in the Gateway database. View these metrics in the Service Metrics window of the Gateway Dashboard.
serviceMetrics.enabledcluster property does
notaffect the collection of metrics data being sent to an external location. Once the Gateway is configured for external metrics, these metrics are collected even if the cluster property is disabled.
The maximum number of worker threads for the service metrics event listener. Minimum is 1.
Remote IPs of requestors allowed to download WSDL and policy documents without credentials. Separate each entry with a space. You may optionally add a netmask to the IP address. Both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses are supported.
The default value allows only pass-through from the localhost. The full IP address of a client must match one of the items in the list before a download is permitted.
For details, see Manage Interfaces.
Controls whether the built-in services (token service, policy service) on the
Layer7 API Gatewayvalidate WS-Security timestamps. Value is a Boolean.
Controls whether download of WSDL dependencies (WSDL/Schema) is permitted.
Set this cluster property to "true" to permit a WSDL with dependencies to be published to UDDI.
UDDI support is deprecated in
Layer7 API Gateway.
Controls whether the download of WSDL using the "?wsdl" URL suffix is permitted. When enabled, the WSDL document can be downloaded using the resolution path of the service. Value is a Boolean.
For details, see Downloading WSDL Documents.

As part of the final phase of its roll out, this property now lets you tune the frequency or intervals (in Time Units) of service usage data collection.
If a number or value is entered without specifying the time unit, the Gateway will assume the value is in minutes.
Default value: 5m
Default: 4 s (i.e., property enabled)
Enables or disables the Gateway's ability to collect service usage statistics .
Inserting a value of 0 disables the collection of this data. Any other value greater than 0 enables the collection of service usage statistics.
If you choose to disable service usage statistics collection, we strongly recommend that you clear the contents of the 'service_usage' table to avoid any data inconsistencies if you decide to re-enable it later. Use the following SQL command to delete its contents:
Disabling Service Statistics Data Collection: Impact on Services/Assertions
There are three Gateway services/assertions that rely on service usage statistics to operate. If the collection of service usage statistics is disabled, the following may not function:
