Request Size Limiting plugin documentation


Request size limit plugins having issues in v1.0.3. In kong version v0.14.1 accepting config.allowed_payload_size=0.002 it mean digits values but in v1.0.3 the minimum payload size is 1. It accepting only integer values. let me know it’s specified in any up-gradation document.


I noticed this change as well, only accepts whole numbers now and not decimals unlike prior versions. So I guess 1MB minimum limit at the moment now.

Edit - Made a github issue on it so this does not get lost in the weeds:
