Delta Bundles

Delta Bundles are released to Styra DAS SaaS Enterprise. Delta Bundles provide a more efficient way to make data changes by only updating the delta changes to the Snapshot Bundle. By leveraging Delta Bundles, Styra DAS propagates data changes to OPAs and SLPs more efficiently. To enable this feature, please contact your Styra Customer Success Manager.

External Bundles are used to configure Styra DAS to allow OPA to access bundles or services from external registries, without the bundles being accessible by Styra DAS. This feature can be used to protect sensitive data. To enable this feature, please contact your Styra Customer Success Manager.
