Logging purge requests

      Last updated November 06, 2019

    If you've set up remote log streaming, you can log URL purge requests by adding the following VCL to the vcl_recv subroutine. For example:

    if (req.method == "FASTLYPURGE") {
      log {"syslog req.service_id <log name> :: "} "event=purge"" service="req.service_id;

    The log name must match the name of your logging endpoint in the Fastly web interface.

    You can add the VCL via custom VCL or VCL Snippets.
