I have a subdomain which has been delegated to Cloudflare’s nameservers. All verified and active. I’ve got a Google Cloud Storage container set-up with that subdomain and I’m putting it behind Cloudflare to be able to provide it with an SSL certificate.
The problem that I’m experiencing relates to page rules. I want to set-up a rule such as:
which does a redirect (301) to
The problem is that whenever I try to apply the page rule, I get a 1004 error relating to DNS validation. There is no A record because of Google Cloud Storage - so something.example.com has to be a flattened CNAME to c.storage.googleapis.com.
I have a working site, but the problem is that I can’t do anything with page rules because of DNS validation.
Is there any way I can get around this problem?
