Compression Options (compression)
An element that is configured within the httpEndpoint element so that the associated HTTP channel can consider compressing response bodies based on the client's Accept-Encoding header.
A unique configuration ID.
The configured compression algorithm is used to compress the body of responses when it is specified with a non-zero quality value in the request's Accept-Encoding header. The valid compression algorithms include: deflate, gzip, x-gzip, zlib, and identity.
To include a content type in addition to the default values, affix the add (+) character as a prefix to that content type. To exclude a content type from compression, affix the remove (-) character as a prefix to that content type. Note: The wildcard (*) character is supported only as a content subtype, such as text/*.
