  • Overwrite caching settings based on match conditions to ensure your content is cached and delivered based on the users requesting it.
  • Modify request and response headers based on a match conditions to tailor your requests for your origins and clients. Create new headers, update existing headers, or remove unwanted headers on both incoming and outgoing traffic. 

New match conditions, actions, and functionalities are planned in the near future.
