URL normalization settings
The Cloudflare dashboard provides the following settings to manage URL normalization:
Normalize incoming URLs
Configures the URLs of all incoming traffic to Cloudflare:
- When enabled, all incoming URLs are normalized before they pass to subsequent Cloudflare features that can receive a URL as input, such as Page Rules, WAF custom rules, Workers, and Access.
- When disabled, incoming URLs are not normalized before passing to subsequent Cloudflare features.
Normalize URLs to origin
Configures URLs sent to the origin:
- When enabled, requests sent to the origin are normalized.
- When disabled, requests sent to the origin are not modified.
You can only view and enable this option when Normalize incoming URLs is enabled.
