Property Value



HTTPS communication is used when ConnectionMode is set to Gateway for all operations and when ConnectionMode is Direct (default) for metadata operations.

Useful in scenarios where the application is using a pool of HttpClient instances to be shared, like ASP.NET Core applications with IHttpClientFactory or Blazor WebAssembly applications.

For .NET core applications the default GatewayConnectionLimit will be ignored. It must be set on the HttpClientHandler.MaxConnectionsPerServer to limit the number of connections
