HTTP Compression

HTTP compression is supported on both incoming and outgoing requests.

Compression is highly recommended where large requests are being submitted. We use the standard HTTP method of specifying compression encoding, with support for the gzip compression schema.

Incoming compression

In order to send compressed data to the AlphaX conduit service it is necessary to send it with gzip encoding. Compress your data using gzip and add the Content-Encoding header to your request:

Content-Encoding: gzip Outgoing compression

To receive data from the AlphaX Conduit service in gzip compressed format simply add the Accept- Encoding header to your request:

Accept-Encoding: gzip

Any response exceeding 1024 bytes will be compressed and the Content-Encoding header added.
