Duplicate Http Header when no result found - 2nd

Post by Mike_k43 » Sat Nov 09, 2019 10:34 am

There is an earlier post with the above subject dated back from 2017 from user JeremyGosling. EPO support replied that they could not reproduce the problem and that this should be a client software problem.

I can reproduce this error with my own client software. Whenever OPS returns "404 Not found" then the response header "X-Throttling-Control" contains duplicate throttling information. To be precise, it is not the header "X-Throttling-Control" itself which is returned twice but its CONTENTS are in duplicate.

This was just recently fixed and will be in one of the next releases that we will announce in the forum.

Vesna for OPS support
