Managing Edge Gateways

Introduction

Edge Gateways do all the heavy lifting of actually managing your requests: traffic proxying, access control, data transformation, logging and more.

Prerequisites

All user roles can edit, deploy, undeploy, restart, redeploy all deployments within a team. Only the Organisation Admin and the Team Admin can create or delete deployments.
