How request settings are applied
Last updated April 24, 2018
Requests settings are applied based on the Action you select in the Create a new request setting page. You can choose any one of the following settings:
- Do nothing now - Apply the request setting options, but don't force a lookup or a pass action. The request settings are applied as the system continues through the VCL logic.
- Lookup (in cache) - Immediately search the cache for content. If the content isn't found (a MISS), then send the request to the origin.
- Pass (do not cache) - Immediately send the request to the origin each time and ignore additional request configurations. See our info on understanding the different PASS action behaviors to learn more.
