How request settings are applied
Requests settings are applied based on the Action you select in the Request Settings window. You can choose any one of the following settings:
- N/A - Applies the request settings within the policy and continues through to other request configurations.
- Lookup - Immediately searches the cache for content. If none is found (a miss), then the request is sent to the origin. Fastly executes this setting prior to other request configurations.
- Pass - Sends the request to the origin each time. Fastly executes this setting immediately and will ignore additional request configurations. See our info on understanding the different PASS action behaviors to learn more.
