Enforce maximum response bytes allowed by Layer7 Administrators

    It would be good idea for Administrators to set a hard limit on Response message size in CWP or under global properties, even though API developers may try to override default value (set in io.xmlPartMaxBytes) with ‘Limit Message Size’ assertion, or within the ‘Route via HTTP(S)’ assertion(under Response size limit properties, on the "Other" tab).


    Currently Administrators can control request message size, but in some scenarios there is a need to block excessive response data streaming, so that resource consumption can be controlled.
