Special Service Guide Update for April 7, 2022

On May 31, 2022, a third-party provider of one of Fastly's geolocation databases will be deprecating support of their legacy geolocation information. Fastly will no longer support the associated geoip.* VCL variables as of May 27, 2022 and will begin requiring all affected Fastly customers to replace the legacy geolocation VCL variables promptly.

Fastly provides client.geo.* variables with comparable functionality that rely on another database that will remain available to all Fastly customers. A list of the affected variables and their supported alternatives can be found on our Developer Hub. Current customers should ensure they are using the alternative geolocation VCL variables detailed on the Developer Hub.

Our documentation archive contains PDF snapshots of docs.fastly.com site content as of the above date. Previous updates can be found in the archive as well.
