ServiceV: Virt Dispatch rule to fire if header does not exist

How do I get a Parameter Dispatch Strategy rule to fire if a header does not exist in a request?

I can check if a header value exists, but I want to return a specific status code if it doesn't exist.

How do I do that?

Hi,

 

It is my understanding that you should do Script Dispatch, but not Parameter one.

This is crazy, why isn't this a standard option?

Have no idea...

Maybe because REST parameters are passed in the URL and are user-controllable while header data is something that is beyond end-user control.
