Sitemap works on G console but not on other sites

https://www.xml-sitemaps.com/validate-xml-sitemap.html

google console seems to read sitemap but other sites like validators or neilpatel shows an error: Incorrect http header content-type: “text/html; charset=UTF-8” (expected: “application/xml”)
yoast plugin support " Could you please whitelist the URL in Cloudflare & try to validate the sitemap again?"

How can i whitelist the sitemap url, i don’t have any page rules set or firewall for now. Used to have india and russia in block.

I bet it’s getting a block page. Have you enabled a Bot Fight mode?

wow, that was amazing and easy, set to allowed and now it works perfectly. DO you suggest to keep JavaScript Detections ? As we are in thread we get some bad russian bots. thank you mate !

JavaScript Detections by itself won’t stop BOTs as it’s just a script to help fingerprint/recognise human/bot activities.

Since I am not using the SFBM and JavaScript Detections seem to add more time to page loading than the benefit, I have it off.
