Posted on 06 May 2019
Rules engine functionality for Azure Content Delivery Network is now available in preview. Rules engine allows you to customise Content Delivery Network behaviour on a per-HTTP request basis to optimise delivery of your content to your end users. Specifically, during preview you’ll be able to:
- Redirect URLs based on match conditions to ensure your content is always delivered via HTTPs, redirect requests to specific origins to deliver the most relevant content to your users, and for other scenarios.
- 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.
