Configuring custom Clickio CDN Cache TTL
To control Clickio CDN Cache more flexibility and precisely, you can create a page rule with ‘Edge cache TTL’ option.
If you want to bypass Clickio CDN cache, create the page rule and set the value of ‘Edge cache TTL’ option to ‘0’.
2. Before getting started
It is important to understand two basic Page Rules behaviors:
- Only the highest priority matching page rule takes effect on a request.
- Page rules are prioritized in descending order in the Clickio Page Rules dashboard, with the highest priority rule at the top.
A page rule matches a URL pattern based on Go regexp syntax with the following format (comprised of one segment):
If you create page rule for domain www.example.com and path
/category/article.* then such rule will be applied to URLs look like:
You can disable a page rule at any time. While a rule is disabled, actions won’t trigger but the rule still appears in the Page Rules dashboard, is editable. The Save as draft option creates a page rule that is disabled by default.
Finally, to create page rules you need to switch on the Activate Page Rules toggle button. If you switch off the Activate Page Rules, all active page rules will be disabled for site.
