You can take advantage of all the advanced configuration policies in the Advanced mode of editing a Site. Advanced configuration policies allow you to very finely tune how your content is treated and behaves across the CDN’s network. Advanced mode also allows you to manage Scopes.
Here we’ll demonstrate how to navigate the Advanced mode of editing a Site. Each of the six policy categories and their related policies have their own Help Center articles where their options are explored in full detail.
Navigating Advanced Site Editing Mode
At the top of the screen, familiar details are available -- Site name, CNAME target, enabled features, delivery method, created date, and last modified date.
You can edit certain attributes of a Site’s details by clicking edit-pencil the edit button.
Below that you’re able to choose which category of policies you’d like to view and edit. Each category of policies is explored in full in their own Help Center articles.
If you’re looking for help with a specific policy within any category, try using the search field of the Help Center to do a search by specific keywords. Searching “Cache Expiration Method” will return articles for the “Cache Settings” policy under the “Cache” category.
Enabling policies is as easy as flipping the On/Off switch. Many policies, when enabled, will be turned on with a set of default options. Other policies are optional and will only be effective when you input the proper values. Every policy is described in full in the Help Center so you’ll never be left wondering how they work.
Scopes: Adding, Managing, And Editing
Scopes allow you to optimize how your content behaves and is treated across the CDN, and how your content behaves and is viewed across the Web. To learn all about Scopes, head over to the Understanding Sites & Scopes article.
Specifically, Scopes allow you to edit the configuration policies controlling a sub-set of your files.
From the Scopes dropdown menu you can navigate to any previously created Scope, as well as add, rename, and delete Scopes.
To add a new Scope, click the Scopes dropdown menu. Then click add-scope-button and appropriately name the new Scope.
To edit a Scope, click the Scopes dropdown menu to navigate to the Scope you’d like to edit. By default, Scopes inherit all configuration policies and settings from their parent Scope. You’ll have to uncheck the “Use defaults from parent Scope” box in order to begin making changes.
Once you’ve unlocked a Scope for editing, you’ll be able to make changes to policies inherited from the parent Scope, and add new policies specific to that Scope independent of the parent Scope.
