Page Rules Migration

We are using the above depreciated Page Rules (important: this product is deprecated, read more here How do we migrate to the new Rules?

It looks like you already found the migration guide.

Which part are you struggling with?

Your first two rules are set to disable apps. According to the migration guide you linked to, it’s to Disable Cloudflare Apps (Deprecated). You’re most likely not using any:

Your third rule is also covered in the Guide, and is pretty straightforward:

Only your third rule is doing anything, so there will be no change in behavior.

Make sure you put that Bypass at the end of the list. Requests work their way down the list, and the final instruction you give it is what it will follow.
