Procedure to configure OTD to overwrite the "X-Forwarded-For" header having only Client IP.


Example request flow is:

Client -> LB -> OTD -> Origin Server/Weblogic (OSB)

If the incoming request to OTD has "X-Forward-Header (XFF)" with a client JIP and when XFF is enabled in OTD, by default OTD will modify the header and send two IPs to the Origin Server having the Client IP and OTD IP

X-Forwared-For : <Client_IP>,<OTD_IP>

However having XFF disabled in OTD, the header does not get passed to Origin Server.
