Automatic Gzip compression

Document updated on Feb 10, 2023

KrakenD Enterprise compresses with gzip all traffic returned to the client when the request contains an Accept-Encoding: gzip header.

The gzip is not applied when the header is missing, or when the Accept-Encoding header contains a text/event-stream value.

Gzip compression is unrelated to decompression when consuming content from your services. Decompression is also done automatically, but in all KrakenD flavours, not only Enterprise.

When the content is successfully compressed, the response contains a "Content-Encoding: gzip" header

Gzip configuration

The gzip is always on unless you disable it in the router section as follows:

{
  "version": 3,
  "extra_config": {
    "router": {
      "disable_gzip": true
    }
  }
}
Fields of "router"
* required fields
disable_gzip

boolean
Enterprise only. All the output to the end user on the Enterprise Edition uses gzip when accepted by the client. Use this flag to remove gzip compression.
Defaults to false
