Supporting Multiple CF Instances
Page last updated:
This topic describes registering a service broker with multiple Cloud Foundry (CF) instances.
It may be necessary for the broker to know which CF instance is making a given request. For example, when using Dashboard Single Sign-On, the broker is expected to interact with the authorization and token endpoints for a given CF instance.
There are two strategies that can be used to discover which CF instance is making a given request.
The broker can use unique credentials, a unique URL, or both for each CF instance. When registering the broker, you can configure different CF instances to use different base URLs that include a unique ID. For example:
On CF instance 1, the service broker is registered with the URL
On CF instance 2, the service broker is registered with the URL
All calls to the broker from CF include an
X-Api-Info-Location header containing the
/v2/info URL for that instance. The
/v2/info endpoint returns further information, including the location of that CF instance’s UAA.
Support for this header was introduced in cf-release v212.Create a pull request or raise an issue on the source for this page in GitHub
