Service Router

Service Router #

INFINI Gateway judges the flow direction based on routers. A typical example of router configuration is as follows:

  - name: my_router
    default_flow: default_flow
    tracing_flow: request_logging
      - method:
          - PUT
          - POST
          - "/_bulk"
          - "/{index_name}/_bulk"
          - bulk_process_flow

Router involves several important terms:

  • Flow: Handling flow of a request. Flows can be defined in three places in a router.
  • default_flow: Default handling flow, which is the main flow of service handling. Request forwarding, filtering, and caching are performed in this flow.
  • tracing_flow: Flow used to track the request status. It is independent of the default_flow. This flow is used to log requests and collect statistics.
  • rules: Requests are distributed to specific handling flows according to matching rules. Regular expressions can be used to match the methods and paths of requests.

Parameter Description #

namestringRoute name
default_flowstringName of the default request handling flow
tracing_flowstringName of the flow used to trace a request
rulesarrayList of routing rules to be applied in the array sequence
rules.methodstringMethod type of a request. The GET, HEAD, POST, PUT, PATCH, DELETE, CONNECT, OPTIONS, and TRACE types are supported and * indicates any type.
rules.patternstringURL path matching rule of a request. Patterns are supported and overlapping matches are not allowed.
rules.flowstringFlow to be executed after rule matching. Multiple flows can be combined and they are executed sequentially.
denied_client_ip_liststring arraySpecified IP list will not allowed access to the gateway service, in order to prevent specify user or application.

Pattern Syntax #

{Variable name}Variable with a name/{name}
{Variable name:regexp}Restricts the matching rule of the variable by using a regular expression./{name:[a-zA-Z]}
{Variable name:*}Any path after matching. It can be applied only to the end of a pattern./{any:*}


Pattern: /user/{user}

 /user/gordon                     match
 /user/you                        match
 /user/gordon/profile             no match
 /user/                           no match

Pattern with suffix: /user/{user}_admin

 /user/gordon_admin               match
 /user/you_admin                  match
 /user/you                        no match
 /user/gordon/profile             no match
 /user/gordon_admin/profile       no match
 /user/                           no match
Pattern: /src/{filepath:*}

 /src/                     match
 /src/somefile.go          match
 /src/subdir/somefile.go   match


  • A pattern must begin with /.
  • Any match is only used as the last rule.

Block IPs #

If you want to block specify know ip to access gateway, you can configure the ip list in the router section, the requests will be denied during the TCP connection establishment。 for below example,the ip will be blocked:

  - name: my_router
    default_flow: async_bulk
