How does my AWS ELB restore original visitor IPS

How does my AWS ELB restore original visitor IPS?

Is your setup: user → Cloudflare → AWS ELB → AWS services?

yes,I use the AWS ELB service. I can only see the cloudflare IP in the ELB log, not the real IP;
The flow direction is like this:user→ Cloudflare → AWS ELB→ AWS WAF ( restore original visitor IPS)→ AWS services

It looks like you’re restoring visitor IP after ELB. Will ELB let you pull the IP address from the request header (cf-connecting-ip)?

Is there a reason you want to see visitor IP addresses in the load balancer log?
