Page Rules settings

Settings control the action Cloudflare takes once a request matches the URL pattern defined in a page rule. You can use settings to enable and disable multiple Cloudflare features across the dashboard.

Note that:

  • Some settings require a Pro, Business, or Enterprise domain plan.
  • You can specify more than one setting to apply when the rule triggers.

Below is the full list of settings available, presented in the order that they appear in the Cloudflare Page Rules page in the Cloudflare dashboard.

Always Use HTTPSEnable Always Use HTTPS feature. If enabled, any http:// URL is converted to https:// through a 301 redirect.

If this option does not appear, you do not have an active Edge Certificate.
Auto Minify (deprecated)Indicate which file extensions to minify automatically.All
Automatic HTTPS RewritesTurn on or off Automatic HTTPS Rewrites.All
Browser Cache TTLControl how long resources cached by client browsers remain valid. The Cloudflare dashboard and the API both prohibit setting Browser Cache TTL to 0 for non-Enterprise domains.All
Browser Integrity CheckInspect the visitor’s browser for headers commonly associated with spammers and certain bots. All
Bypass Cache on CookieBypass cache and fetch resources from the origin server if a regular expression matches against a cookie name present in the request.
If you add both this setting and the Cache On Cookie setting to the same page rule, Cache On Cookie takes precedence over Bypass Cache on Cookie.

Refer to the Additional details to learn about limited regular expression support.
Business and Enterprise
Cache By Device TypeSeparate cached content based on the visitor’s device type. Enterprise
Cache Deception ArmorProtect from web cache deception attacks while still allowing static assets to be cached. This setting verifies that the URL’s extension matches the returned Content-TypeAll
Cache KeyAlso referred to as Custom Cache Key.
Control specifically what variables to include when deciding which resources to cache. This allows customers to determine what to cache based on something other than just the URL.
Cache LevelApply custom caching based on the option selected:

Bypass: Cloudflare does not cache.
No Query String: Delivers resources from cache when there is no query string.
Ignore Query String: Delivers the same resource to everyone independent of the query string.
Standard: Caches all static content that has a query string.
Cache Everything: Treats all content as static and caches all file types beyond the Cloudflare default cached content. Respects cache headers from the origin web server unless Edge Cache TTL is also set in the Page Rule. When combined with an Edge Cache TTL > 0Cache Everything removes cookies from the origin web server response. 
Cache on CookieApply the Cache Everything option (Cache Level setting) based on a regular expression match against a cookie name.
If you add both this setting and Bypass Cache on Cookie to the same page rule, Cache On Cookie takes precedence over Bypass Cache on Cookie.
Business and above
Cache TTL by Status CodeEnterprise customers can set cache time-to-live (TTL) based on the response status from the origin web server. Cache TTL refers to the duration of a resource in the Cloudflare network before being marked as stale or discarded from cache. Status codes are returned by a resource’s origin. Setting cache TTL based on response status overrides the default cache behavior (standard caching) for static files and overrides cache instructions sent by the origin web server. To cache non-static assets, set a Cache Level of Cache Everything using a Page Rule. Setting no-store Cache-Control or a low TTL (using max-age/s-maxage) increases requests to origin web servers and decreases performance.Enterprise
