RequestID

RequestID middleware for Fiber that adds an identifier to the response.

Signatures

func New(config ...Config) fiber.Handler
func FromContext(c fiber.Ctx) string

Examples

Import the middleware package that is part of the Fiber web framework

import (
"github.com/gofiber/fiber/v3"
"github.com/gofiber/fiber/v3/middleware/requestid"
)

After you initiate your Fiber app, you can use the following possibilities:

// Initialize default config
app.Use(requestid.New())

// Or extend your config for customization
app.Use(requestid.New(requestid.Config{
Header: "X-Custom-Header",
Generator: func() string {
return "static-id"
},
}))

Getting the request ID

func handler(c fiber.Ctx) error {
id := requestid.FromContext(c)
log.Printf("Request ID: %s", id)
return c.SendString("Hello, World!")
}

Config

PropertyTypeDescriptionDefault
Nextfunc(fiber.Ctx) boolNext defines a function to skip this middleware when returned true.nil
HeaderstringHeader is the header key where to get/set the unique request ID."X-Request-ID"
Generatorfunc() stringGenerator defines a function to generate the unique identifier.utils.UUID

Default Config

The default config uses a fast UUID generator which will expose the number of requests made to the server. To conceal this value for better privacy, use the utils.UUIDv4 generator.

var ConfigDefault = Config{
Next: nil,
Header: fiber.HeaderXRequestID,
Generator: utils.UUID,
}
