CF causing rate limit error for GitLab pages

As stated in the title, it seems that GitLab Pages sites behind Cloudflare are getting hit with rate-limits on the GL side of things. Is there a reason for CF to start sending excess requests to trigger this out of the blue?

Here’s a thread where others are having the same issue on the GitLab forum. It looks like removing the traffic from passing through CF resolves the issue. Seems to have started a day or two ago based on some monitoring alerts I’ve received.

Made a post on that thread, CF ips must be whitelisted and visitor IP addresses must be restored with certain headers. This is something that must be fixed in Gitlab.

A temporary solution is as you say: Turn your Gitlab pages CNAME from :orange: to :grey:, at least until Gitlab implements a fix.

Fixed, see
