Query Authorization

With this feature enabled, the edge servers can authenticate the request without contacting the origin.

How it works

This behavior checks whether the user has a valid authentication token in the URL query string.

When you enable Query Authorization, you specify:

  • The Query Name. For example, myquery.
  • A Salt. The salt is a random string of up to 128 characters used to generate the token that the edge servers can use to confirm its authenticity.
