"headers": []

Field Type Description
headers [] Specifies a set of headers that the route should match on. The router will check the response headers against all the specified headers in the route config. A match will happen if all the headers in the route are present in the request with the same values (or based on presence if the value field is not in the config).
responseCodeDetails Only match responses with non empty response code details (this usually implies a local reply).


"match": .envoy.api.v2.filter.http.ResponseMatcher
"responseTransformation": .envoy.api.v2.filter.http.Transformation

Field Type Description
match .envoy.api.v2.filter.http.ResponseMatcher
responseTransformation .envoy.api.v2.filter.http.Transformation transformation to perform.


This message defines a transformation. This proto is for envoy filter config, not user-facing API.

"transformationTemplate": .envoy.api.v2.filter.http.TransformationTemplate
"headerBodyTransform": .envoy.api.v2.filter.http.HeaderBodyTransform

Field Type Description
transformationTemplate .envoy.api.v2.filter.http.TransformationTemplate Apply transformation templates. Only one of transformationTemplate, headerBodyTransform, or transformerConfig can be set.
headerBodyTransform .envoy.api.v2.filter.http.HeaderBodyTransform This type of transformation will make all the headers available in the response body. The resulting JSON body will consist of two attributes: ‘headers’, containing the headers, and ‘body’, containing the original body. Only one of headerBodyTransform, transformationTemplate, or transformerConfig can be set.
transformerConfig Configuration for an externally implemented transformer, used by envoy transformation filter. Only one of transformerConfig, transformationTemplate, or headerBodyTransform can be set.


Extractions can be used to extract information from the request/response. The extracted information can then be referenced in template fields.

"header": string
"body": .google.protobuf.Empty
"regex": string
"subgroup": int

Field Type Description
header string Extract information from headers. Only one of header or body can be set.
body .google.protobuf.Empty Extract information from the request/response body. Only one of body or header can be set.
regex string Only strings matching this regular expression will be part of the extraction. This regex must match the entire source in order for a value to be extracted. The most simple value for this field is ‘.*’, which matches the whole source. The field is required. If extraction fails the result is an empty value.
subgroup int If your regex contains capturing groups, use this field to determine which group should be selected.


Defines a transformation template.

"advancedTemplates": bool
"extractors": map<string, .envoy.api.v2.filter.http.Extraction>
"headers": map<string, .envoy.api.v2.filter.http.InjaTemplate>
"headersToAppend": []envoy.api.v2.filter.http.TransformationTemplate.HeaderToAppend
"headersToRemove": []string
"body": .envoy.api.v2.filter.http.InjaTemplate
"passthrough": .envoy.api.v2.filter.http.Passthrough
"mergeExtractorsToBody": .envoy.api.v2.filter.http.MergeExtractorsToBody
"parseBodyBehavior": .envoy.api.v2.filter.http.TransformationTemplate.RequestBodyParse
"ignoreErrorOnParse": bool
"dynamicMetadataValues": []envoy.api.v2.filter.http.TransformationTemplate.DynamicMetadataValue

Field Type Description
advancedTemplates bool If set to true, use JSON pointer notation (e.g. “time/start”) instead of dot notation (e.g. “time.start”) to access JSON elements. Defaults to false. Please note that, if set to ‘true’, you will need to use the extraction function to access extractors in the template (e.g. ‘{{ extraction(“my_extractor”) }}'); if the default value of ‘false’ is used, extractors will simply be available by their name (e.g. ‘{{ my_extractor }}').
extractors map<string, .envoy.api.v2.filter.http.Extraction> Use this attribute to extract information from the request. It consists of a map of strings to extractors. The extractor will defines which information will be extracted, while the string key will provide the extractor with a name. You can reference extractors by their name in templates, e.g. “{{ my-extractor }}” will render to the value of the “my-extractor” extractor.
headers map<string, .envoy.api.v2.filter.http.InjaTemplate> Use this attribute to transform request/response headers. It consists of a map of strings to templates. The string key determines the name of the resulting header, the rendered template will determine the value. Any existing headers with the same header name will be replaced by the transformed header. If a header name is included in headers and headers_to_append, it will first be replaced the template in headers, then additional header values will be appended by the templates defined in headers_to_append. For example, the following header transformation configuration: yaml headers: x-header-one: {"text": "first {{inja}} template"} x-header-one: {"text": "second {{inja}} template"} headersToAppend: - key: x-header-one value: {"text": "first appended {{inja}} template"} - key: x-header-one value: {"text": "second appended {{inja}} template"} will result in the following headers on the HTTP message: x-header-one: first inja template x-header-one: first appended inja template x-header-one: second appended inja template.
headersToAppend []envoy.api.v2.filter.http.TransformationTemplate.HeaderToAppend Use this attribute to transform request/response headers. It consists of an array of string/template objects. Use this attribute to define multiple templates for a single header. Header template(s) defined here will be appended to any existing headers with the same header name, not replace existing ones. See headers documentation to see an example of usage.
headersToRemove []string Attribute to remove headers from requests. If a header is present multiple times, all instances of the header will be removed.
body .envoy.api.v2.filter.http.InjaTemplate Apply a template to the body. Only one of body, passthrough, or mergeExtractorsToBody can be set.
passthrough .envoy.api.v2.filter.http.Passthrough This will cause the transformation filter not to buffer the body. Use this setting if the response body is large and you don’t need to transform nor extract information from it. Only one of passthrough, body, or mergeExtractorsToBody can be set.
mergeExtractorsToBody .envoy.api.v2.filter.http.MergeExtractorsToBody Merge all defined extractors to the request/response body. If you want to nest elements inside the body, use dot separator in the extractor name. Only one of mergeExtractorsToBody, body, or passthrough can be set.
parseBodyBehavior .envoy.api.v2.filter.http.TransformationTemplate.RequestBodyParse
ignoreErrorOnParse bool If set to true, Envoy will not throw an exception in case the body parsing fails.
dynamicMetadataValues []envoy.api.v2.filter.http.TransformationTemplate.DynamicMetadataValue Use this field to set Dynamic Metadata.


Defines a header-template pair to be used in headers_to_append

"key": string
"value": .envoy.api.v2.filter.http.InjaTemplate

Field Type Description
key string Header name.
value .envoy.api.v2.filter.http.InjaTemplate Apply a template to the header value.


Defines an Envoy Dynamic Metadata entry.

"metadataNamespace": string
"key": string
"value": .envoy.api.v2.filter.http.InjaTemplate

Field Type Description
metadataNamespace string The metadata namespace. Defaults to the filter namespace.
key string The metadata key.
value .envoy.api.v2.filter.http.InjaTemplate A template that determines the metadata value.


Determines how the body will be parsed.

Name Description
ParseAsJson Will attempt to parse the request/response body as JSON
DontParse The request/response body will be treated as plain text


Defines an Inja template that will be rendered by Gloo. In addition to the core template functions, the Gloo transformation filter defines the following custom functions:

"text": string

Field Type Description
text string

Field Type Description


"addRequestMetadata": bool

Field Type Description
addRequestMetadata bool When transforming a request, setting this to true will additionally add “queryString”, “queryStringParameters”, “multiValueQueryStringParameters”, “httpMethod”, “path”, and “multiValueHeaders” to the body.
