Purge CDN Resources Content

This tool allows instant removal of HTTP Pull and HTTP Push cache content in the CDN, if newly updated content has not been properly replicated.

To purge a single file:

  1. Go to your Control Panel > CDN > Resources > CDN resource's label.
  2. On the page that appears, click the Purge tab.
  3. In the Paths to Purge field, specify the destination path(s). You can enter only one path per line.

The maximum capacity of the Paths to Purge box is 1,000 lines.

       4. Click Purge.

To purge all content:

  1. Go to your Control Panel > CDN > Resources > CDN resource's label.
  2. On the page that appears, click the Purge tab.
  3. Click Purge All Contents of This Site to purge all content.
Please note that you can purge only the content of HTTP Pull and HTTP Push CDN resources.

Also, on the Purge tab, in the table, you can view the statuses of your transactions with the following details:

  • Job ID - the ID of transaction
  • Url - the Url path to purge
  • Status - the status of transaction ( queued, % of progress, completed or failed)
  • Time Initiated - the time when transaction was started
  • Time Completed - the time when transaction was completed
Be aware that statuses for PurgeAll transactions are not tracked.

Because objects are not stored in the cache directory structure, it is not possible to purge URLs with a wildcard or a directory as in the example below:

/path/to/file/*.jpg
/path/to/directory/

It is recommended to add a version ID to your URL query string. Apart from invalidating edge server cache, it also invalidates browser cache.

There is a limit of 40 purge requests per 5-minute interval for each user account. This limit serves as a safety margin to ensure the performance of the Purge feature.
