Set up a Conditional Origin Group rule

The Conditional Origin Group rule is the container for all the Conditional Origins in your property.

When adding this rule, make sure it's the last child rule of the property’s default rule. You can't have multiple Conditional Origin Group rules within a property.

How to

  1. Access Property Manager configurations associated with the selected Control Center account. Go to > CDN > Properties (or just enter Properties in the search box).
    The Property Groups page opens.
  2. Select the property you're adding Conditional Origins to. The property should be associated with the Cloudlets policy that will use the Conditional Origins.
  3. Select the property version you want to edit. The configuration screen for the selected property version displays.
  4. On the Edit tab, verify that Default Rule is selected and click Add Rule.
    The Add New Rule screen displays.
  5. Select Conditional Origin Group from the list of available rule templates.
    The template description page displays.
  6. Click Insert Rule.
    A new Conditional Origin Group rule displays as the last child rule of the Default Rule.
    By default, this rule template includes child rules for defining two Conditional Origins.
    Note: You don't need to set up two Conditional Origins if you only need one. If necessary, you can also delete a Conditional Origin you do not need, or are no longer using.
  7. In the Criteria section for the rule, click Add Match to select the type of match to use to trigger a Conditional Origin. See the Property Manager help for more information.
  8. In the Allow Conditional Origins behavior, complete the following fields:
    Allow Conditional Origins Behavior Fields
    Field Description
    Enable Select to enable Conditional Origins for this property.
    Honor Origin Base Path If an Origin Base Path behavior is applied to the request, select whether to prefix the path defined in the behavior to the origin path the Cloudlet generates.

    If no Origin Base Path behavior is present for the request, this setting has no effect.

    Important: If a Cloudlet already modifies the path by prepending the same Origin Base Path, the path segment isn't duplicated.
    Origin Purge Query Parameter Enter the query parameter to use when purging cache content from a Conditional Origin. When this query parameter is present in a purge request, the specified Conditional Origin will be purged.

    The default query parameter is originId. You define the originId in the Conditional Origin Definition rule.

  9. If an error displays stating that the Conditional Origin Group rule is not the last child rule within the property’s Default Rule, go to the rule tree, then click and drag the rule it so that it becomes the last rule.
  10. Set up a Conditional Origin Definition rule.
