Hi @alyamobeen,

First I see there are two servers added in the backend upstream :

        server  backup;
        server max_fails=3 fail_timeout=180s ;

Are you sure these IPs are correct and you have access to them?

As for the parameter you’ve mentioned are you by any chances talking about : location/services/ert/api/potentialvalue(.*)? I think using it like that location/services/ert/api/potentialvalue$ should be enough.
