About the Deliver page
Last updated 2021-11-08
The Deliver page allows you to define exactly how each instance of your content delivery network (CDN) cache should behave and control content from data sources. The Deliver page appears automatically for logged in users with the appropriate access permissions.
Be sure you know how to access the web interface controls before learning about each of the pages you'll encounter there.
The Deliver page is the key area of the web interface where you work with your CDN services and their configuration settings. From here you can access the Service summary tab, where you can review general service details including the event log, duplicate (clone) service versions so you can edit them, and purge content.
The Deliver page also provides access to the Service configuration tab, with the main controls for editing your service configurations. Specifically you can:
- manage the domains used to route requests to a CDN service
- manage the hosts used as backends for a site and how they should be accessed
- manage the health checks that monitor backend hosts
- enable certain Fastly products for the service, if you are assigned the role of superuser or engineer. Note that this will result in changes to your monthly bill.
- manage various request and cache settings, headers, and responses that control how Fastly caches and serves content for a CDN service
- specify how logging should be performed and where server logs should be sent
- create custom Varnish configuration language (VCL) files
- specify how conditions are mapped and used for a service at various times (e.g., during request processing, when Fastly receives a backend response, or just before an object is potentially cached)
With the appropriate permissions, you can activate configuration changes immediately and roll back those changes just as quickly should they not have the intended effect. The Deliver page also allows you to compare differences between two configuration versions.Dig deeper into details about all areas of the web interface controls before you move on to using them to work with services.
