Hello ,

We have recently acquired a Digital Oceans Load Balancer for our Tomcat projects and we would like to use the SSL termination on the Load Balancer but it is required for us to add a header. Is that possible ??

Hey hansen, Thank you for your fast reply!!

@pskout Currently that’s not possible. The Load Balancer does not allow advanced features, so if you need something like that, then it might be better to setup a load balancer yourself.
