Interceptor Context and Invocation Context

Interceptor Context

Interceptor context is a string to string map that can be shared with request flow interceptor and response flow interceptor. From the request interceptor, you can set it in the response body of the request interceptor, and Choreo Connect Router will add them to the request it made to the response interceptor. Following is a sample interceptor context.

  "interceptorContext": {
    "key1": "value1"

Invocation Context

Invocation context describes the request information. This is an optional object that you can request from Choreo Connect Router to your interceptor service by referring it in the includes in Open API Definition. Invocation context has the following information.

  "invocationContext": {
    "requestId": "<unitaque_id_for_request>",
