Header filter

Header filter

The header filter can filter a message using a header property. The filter returns a boolean value. Based on this value and the inverse value, the message is either passed through or sent to the discard flow.

This filter can be used as a simple router service.

In the table below, you will find an explanation of these properties. All attributes with a ‘*’ are mandatory.




By default, we fill this out with the technical ‘tag’, followed by a serial number. Changing the name is optional.


Set this value to true, if you want this service to be enabled.

Header Name*

The header used in the filter.

Compare content*

The content by which the header is compared to.

To check on an empty value, use '' as a value in this field

Discard Flow

Reference to a flow for messages, for which the strategy filter returns false.


Switch to invert strategy result.
