Caching Stage

Cache data from a backend resource, reducing the number of requests to the resource. Use this stage to return cached responses instead of forwarding those requests to the backend server.


Caching Stage contains the following fields:

Field Description
Time The time interval that the cached response is kept. The first time the API backend receives a request message, the response is cached. On the second request within the specified time interval, a cache hit occurs. The cached response is returned to the application with no request forwarded to the backend service. By default, the cache memory is 20 MB. If the cached response data exceeds the default memory, the oldest data is deleted.
Operation The operation that you want to apply this stage to. You can click the drop-down menu to change the operation or select more operations.
