Hi. Thanks for the post. I tried this with my wcf but it seems not working. I dont see any compression in the fiddler. Do I have to do anything else for WCF?

I tried this on my server and could not get compression to work for json until I did the following:
set the changes in ApplicationHost.config file via appCmd.exe
Also, I had to set mimeType to 'application/json; charset=utf-8' since that was the content-type being returned by my server.
So, full command:
appcmd.exe set config -section:system.webServer/httpCompression /+"dynamicTypes.[mimeType='application/json; charset=utf-8',enabled='True']" /commit:apphost

After this, I see encoding-type: gzip in my server http response header
