Is 'Auto Minify' necessary when using APO?

Does it serve any extra benefit to minify CSS, JS and HTML when ‘Automatic Platform Optimization’ is enabled?

Hi there @jc2552,
Thanks for contacting Cloudflare support.

Auto-minify and other Speed features that optimize HTML content in Cloudflare’s cache are applied on a different layer of the stack which is not called when a request is served straight from APO’s own cache.

So no extra benefit will arise from enabling this feature when Automatic Platform Optimization is enabled.

I hope this information as useful, let us know in case we can further assist you in this matter.
