Request.cf is undefined

The documentation says:

In addition to the information available on the Request object, such as headers, Cloudflare provides additional attributes of the request using the request.cf object.

Attributes available on request.cf :

  • country : the two letter country code on the request (this is the same value as the one provided by the CF-IPCountry header)
  • colo : the three letter airport code of the colo the request hit.

When I try to console.log request.cf.colo and request.cf.country it returns undefined.

some of the headers not available in the debug mode only in production, I use it like so(saw it somewhere in the docs):
(request.cf || {}).colo

I wish that was mentioned in the documentation! Thanks for the info

also sometimes in rare cases country can return undefined so prepare for that

Another solution is to just write it like this request?.cf?.colo
That way it shows undefined whenever it is not available

Try the following (I have not tried it!)

const country = request.headers.get(‘cf-ipcountry’)
console.log('Country: '+country);

const city = request.cf.city
console.log('City: '+city);

The same for values below:

const connectingip = request.headers.get(‘cf-connecting-ip’)
const city = request.cf.city
const timezone = request.cf.timezone
const region = request.cf.region
const regionCode = request.cf.regionCode
const asOrganization = request.cf.asOrganization
const postalCode = request.cf.postalCode
