Protect one Route of Service

Hello, I would like to protect one route of my Service with a api key.

My Service has Endpoints like GET /posts POST /posts and so on. I Would only like to protect POST /posts. Is this possible? What is best practice to structure my service in kong?

Hello @volbrene

I tested with httpbin.org for example service

First, add service, Then add 2 routes

  1. GET-anything
  • paths : /anything
  • methods: GET
  1. POST-anything
  • paths : /anything
  • methods: POST

Now you have 2 routes for GET, POST at the same endpoint

Then you can enable the plugin per route
