  • Block HTTP OPTIONS

  • Frame Options (Allow From)

The value for this setting is a comma-separated list in the form: hosta.com:8888, hostb.org. Any request that does not request one of the hosts in the list will be treated as though it had requested the first entry in the list.

Description Suppress Platform Information
Default Value false

Property Type BOOLEAN
Description If enabled, the server suppress most details about errors from being released in HTTP responses.
