403 reponse errors for a server that was marked as bot

I have a service that make a keep alive checks for my customers’ services.
So it sends web requests to these servers every several minutes,
and also makes a port scan.

Is there a way I could allowlist my server so It won’t get 304 response codes?

Your customers behind Cloudflare would have to allow your service using IP access rules or a WAF custom rule to let your request through.

You can also apply to list as a verified bot, but that won’t guarantee you will pass through customers’ settings…

Port scanning Cloudflare IPs won’t tell you anything about the customer’s service so you might as well skip that for Cloudflare hosted sites.
