Set back-to-origin rules

Last Updated: Feb 11, 2018

You can set back-to-origin rules to define whether to retrieve origin data by mirroring or redirection. Back-to-origin rules are usually used for hot migration of data and redirection of specific requests. You can configure up to five back-to-origin rules, which is executed by the system in sequence.

Note: Back-to-origin does not support intranet endpoint. For more information on traffic fees, see Pricing.

  4. In the Back-to-Origin area, click Edit.

  5. Click Create Rule.

  6. In the Back-to-Origin Type area, select Mirroring or Redirect.

    • When Mirroring is configured, if a requested file is not found on OSS, it is automatically retrieved from the source site, saved to the OSS, and the content is returned to the user.

    • When Redirect is configured, the requests that meet the response condition are returned to the redirected URL through HTTP redirection. A browser or client then obtains the content from the source site.

  7. Click OK to save the rule.

Note: After the rule is successfully saved, you can view the configured rule in the rule list and perform corresponding Edit or Clear operations.
