Add user-agent header in your requests to VirtualRestService
Closed, ResolvedPublic


If OCG uses VRS, please see T131075#2157510 -- it looks like you can pass the header to VRS and RESTBase will then forward that to Parsoid. In any case, please make sure you set the user-agent header in all your requests. We need this information for attributing log requests to specific upstream clients.

Should be there already, since Sep 2 2015: 8d8cd3ec79367fa086a203768971e5aaa26811a8

Need to confirm that this code is correctly working and user-agent is being passed through.
