Do Workers Bypass Firewall Rules?

If a worker makes a request to a same origin path that has a Firewall rule blocking access, will the worker be blocked?

So for instance,
Let’s say I have a firewall rule which blocks incoming traffic with the hostname something-else.test.com. And I have a Cloudflare worker configured to make a request to something-else.test.com when it sees requests for https://www.test.com/help.

Will the Cloudflare worker’s request be blocked by the firewall rule? Is there documentation on this?

You may be best to ask the team directly over on the workers discord server, let us know what they say.

I have Workers that are self-contained HTML (sorta like Pages), but it’s self-coded.

My Firewall Rules, such as Block Country, do trigger for my Worker.
