Forward to Another Service
In some cases, we may need to forward all or some of the requests to a real backend somewhere outside of MockMotor.
It may be required for:
The forwarding is not performed on mock service level. Instead, each of responses can be configured separately to forward its request, or to respond with a mock. Different responses can even be forwarded to different services, if required.
To forward a response, simply provide the forward URL:
No other values are required. The HTTP request will be forwarded to the backend as-is, including all the HTTP headers except those that can
be different for MockMotor-backend communications. Currently, MockMotor replaces
The response cannot modify the response received from the backend (for example, to add a field to mock a future update). This is planned for some of the future versions.
Forwarding to backends with two-way SSL is not yet supported - MockMotor cannot yet present a trusted certificate.
