I have noticed that single file cache purging on the free plan has recently intermittently stopped working. The last time I noticed this there was a bug that effected the free plan only (see #281900).
This seems to happen when the same file is purged more than once in quick succession. Is there any rate limit on the number of times a single file cache purge can be called on the free plan? I can see the Cloudflare API is returning a 200 on each occasion the cache is purged but the CDN is still serving up old content. Any help would be much appreciated!
When a responsecode 200 is generated the request must be executed. But keep in mind that the 200 code just means your request was accepted, there is a 30s windows in which the cache then will be purged.
Does this occure just if used the API or also when using the Dashboard?
Hi @M4rt1n, thanks for your help yesterday. I’m not able to reproduce this again today. A few of my users have reported a problem over the last week or so, and I have witnessed the stale resource after they have reported it. I’ll report back with a purge cache ray-id when it happens again.
Just to confirm it’s the CF-Ray header on API responses in the format ‘6d01759e7d52418a-AMS’?
Will you also need the CF-Ray header on the subsequent GET request to the resource?
