How to SSL OFF for Specific User agent?

I need to disable ssl for some useragents. There’s no rules for that. Is it possible?

No, there isn’t any valid reason why you would want to do this.


Could be possible with the combination of Transform Rules and Page Rules, but yeah not sure what’s the reason here.

You can’t do this: the TLS (SSL) connection is established before the HTTP request, which contains the User-Agent, is sent.

Different layer of the stack.

We can’t totally prevent someone from making HTTPS requests to Cloudflare and Cloudflare will still process it (provided that the admin of the domain deploys Edge SSL certificate for his domain no matter it is Universal SSL or ACM), however we can redirect the users back to HTTP once HTTPS request is detected - this is actually how SSL mode “Off” works in terms of dealing with incoming HTTPS requests (again, if Edge Certificate is deployed).

Anyway, here’s how I do it:

  1. Create a Transform Rule

  2. Create a Page Rule
