Our API Gateway Caching Solution

API caching operation depends on multiple conditions!

HTTP Method for API Caching

Cache-Control Headers for API Caching

Cache-Control: max-age=x:

  • When the max-age value is defined in the Cache-Control header of the API request, the API gateway checks the time at which the previous API response was cached.
  • If the cached response is older than 'x' seconds, the API request is sent to the backend API server, and the cached response is updated.
  • If the cached response is within the max-age mentioned, the request is served from the API gateway cache.
  • Finally, the response is returned to the client.
API Response Caching, cache control max-age
API Response Caching, Cache Control Private

Cache-Control: private:

  • If the Cache-Control header value is private, the API gateway does not cache the API response and forwards the request to your backend server.
  • The API response is usually marked as private when it can only be cached by the client device/browser and not by any intermediate CDNs.

Cache-Control: no-store:

  • As the value suggests, no-store defines that the API response should not be cached.
  • Our API gateway honors this request and ensures that the API response is not cached.

API Response Caching, Cache Control No Cache

Cache-Control: no-cache:

  • If the Cache-Control header has the value of no-store, the API gateway validates the cached response by sending the request to the API backend server.
  • "no-cache" does not mean do not store cache, however, it requires the cache to be revalidated from the API backend server before serving the response to the client.
