The Gateway received an invalid response from the upstream server. There are number of different configuration settings that could bring about this issue.


Try using the following settings in your tyk.conf file:

proxy.service_discovery.endpoint_returns_list = true
proxy.service_discovery.data_path = ""Address”
proxy.service_discovery.port_data_path = “ServicePort""
