Using Access on links that forward

Hi all,

I’ve got an application I’m trying to secure and I’m 99% of the way there. I’m using Firewall to restrict specific data to URLs and I’m using Access to force Azure AD credentials to Access the login page.

When we go to, it will automatically forward us to
If we enable Access on, it will only challenge us for Azure AD authentication if we go directly to, not if we go to

We cannot enable access on as we have other traffic going to it from applications that cannot accept an Azure AD challenge.

I hope this makes sense!


I see you’ve set ‘link’ to redirect to ‘login’…but what happens? The redirect doesn’t work? Or does the redirect happen, but “Access” don’t restrict access to ‘login’?

Hi there,

It automatically redirects and doesn’t throw the Access page. I tried putting a CloudFlare redirect in to see if that makes a difference, but it doesn’t. I’ll remove it so it doesn’t confuse us!

You’re saying that it bypasses Access and lets the visitor get to the ‘login’ page?

Yes that’s correct.

And this happens with a fresh browser? That sounds very wrong. If anybody can do this, then you’d better contact Support.
Login to Cloudflare and then contact Cloudflare Support by clicking on the Get More Help button.

Thanks - I’ve done that.
