About ECCU Data Fields

When you enter the refresh instructions, you use the following data:
  • Request Name (optional):

    The Name is for your convenience should you later want to refresh content using the same criteria. It’s a note to yourself or your coworkers. For example, “logo images cleanup” or “test directories cleanup.”

  • Properties:

    Select the Digital Property Name(s) you want to work on. You can select up to 20 names.

    If the property is an inexact match, it is preceded by a wildcard asterisk, as in “*.example.com”. Exact matches show no wildcard, as in “www.example.com”.

Note: The digital property name, type, and match, are described in About Digital Properties.
  • Emails (optional): If you want email notification when the request is processed, enter the email address you want notified.
  • Directory:

    To specify the root directory, use “/” by itself, and in any case, the path should start with a “/”. Note that if the match is inexact, the match is for any root directory matching the property name. For example, if the property is *.example.com, and you use / for the directory, you’re giving instructions to refresh everything under test.example.com/, www2.example.com, another.example.com/, and so forth. However, this would not match new-example.com.

    When you specify a directory, its subdirectories are automatically included.

    Don’t use wildcard characters (? *), dots (.), commas (,) or semi-colons (;).

  • File Extensions:

    You can specify the file extensions to refresh. Don’t use dots, wildcard characters, commas or semi-colons (. * ? , ;) in the extensions. That is, “gif ” is OK, but the following are NOT OK: “.gif ”, “htm*” or “htm?”. Case doesn’t matter: “GIF” is the same as “gif ”.
