The Manage Cluster-Wide Properties task is used to configure settings for your node. If your node is part of a cluster, all other nodes in the cluster inherit the new settings as well.
Manage Cluster-Wide Propertiestask is used to configure settings for your
Layer7 API Gatewaynode. If your node is part of a cluster, all other nodes in the cluster inherit the new settings as well.
Assertions that can use context variables can also indirectly read cluster-wide properties through the
}variable. For more information, see Multivalued Context Variables.
For a list of all the properties that can be configured, see Gateway Cluster Properties.
