default_binding — control usage of the "default" binding


default_binding = "normal"

default_binding = "suspended"

default_binding = "none"


The default binding is the binding that a message belongs to when no other binding applies. For more information see the section called “The "default" Binding”.

For customers using MultiVIP© interfaces, it may be desirable never to use the 'default' binding. There are two options for this. If Default_Binding is set to none, then messages that would fall into the default binding will generate a 451 transient failure back to the generating software.

The default value for this option is normal

If you wish to suspend delivery for the default binding, do it in the following way:

binding "default" {
  suspend_delivery = true


default_binding is valid in the global scope.
