Hi guys,

I'm writing this issue to discuss about an improvement.

Today, Consul is able to perform an HTTP health-check with a defined route (ex: /health).
It would be awesome to send a request with custom fields set in the HTTP header.
In this way, it should be possible to test:

  • the routing rules of a reverse proxy with the field Host,
  • an authentication with the field Authorization or custom
  • or even test CORS with Origin.

To illustrate:
adding: req.Header.Set("Host", "")

It can be done with scripting+curl, but using the http health check would be the best practice.
