ARI + nginx usage reason

Hello,

may I ask why people setup nginx before asterisk ARI? Asterisk ARI can’t handle the big traffic? Or what the reason?

I’m not aware of people setting up nginx before ARI. ARI isn’t really meant (although it could be) for use with an HTTP proxy.

I’ve done it before for security reasons - I trust nginx to be on the outside of the network when it comes to HTTP, I don’t necessarily trust Asterisk :slight_smile: From what I recall, it is a bit of a pain though if you rely on the swagger docs to generate your lib (like node-ari does)
