CF-Cache-Status: MISS With Google Cloud Storage

I have setup Cloudflare to setup a cname to point to

Google Cloud Storage assets links to the website are pointing to: https :// as an example.

The Google Cloud Storage files load fine on the website just fine, however Cloudflare is not caching the files even though the orange cloud is turned on. The headers look like:

Accept-Ranges: bytes
Cache-Control: public, max-age=14400
CF-Cache-Status: MISS

I’ve searched and searched Google and Cloudflare docs and can’t find anything that I’m missing. What am I doing wrong? Thanks!

Google is most likely sending some caching header which prevents Cloudflare from caching.

What is the actual URL?

Thanks for the quick response. Here’s the URL I’m testing this setup on:

That seems to be the very case.


You need to configure your server so that is allows actual caching.

Oh wow, okay thanks for that. Strange the headers in Chrome show:

Cache-Control: public, max-age=14400

I’ll try setting headers on the files in GCS.

Thats the header the Cloudflare proxies send. What I referred to comes from your server.
