Issue/Introduction

A client that's using brotli as the compression algorithm to make http calls. Is brotli supported by the gateway? It seems he receives only binary data and cannot use the results of the api call made.


Environment

Release : 9.4

Component : API GATEWAY

Resolution

A quick look at the documentation shows that gzip is properly supported, but there is nothing about brotli.

for example this page : https://techdocs.broadcom.com/us/en/ca-enterprise-software/layer7-api-management/api-gateway/10-0/policy-assertions/assertion-palette/message-routing-assertions/route-via-http-2-assertion.html

only mention gzip for content-encoding.

Currently Brotli is not supported for content-encoding on the gateway.
