Question

Is it possible to use different signed URLs share the same CDN cache.

We have implemented signed URLs with spaces and DO CDN. The overall implementation is working well. We are trying to see if different signed URLs to the same asset will use the same CDN cache or will it create a different cache object based on the URL parameters? I am not able to see any access logs to spaces or headers if the file is fetched from the CDN or spaces directly. Does anyone have experience with this?

Ex signed URL from our staging env https://staging-bucket-name.ams3.cdn.digitaloceanspaces.com/ex-file-name?X-Amz-Algorithm=AWS4-HMAC-SHA256&X-Amz-Credential=ABC&X-Amz-Date=20220125T081224Z&X-Amz-Expires=3600&X-Amz-SignedHeaders=host&X-Amz-Signature=ASIG454

Hey @jonaseliasson,

Indeed as you mentioned such a log is not available but it sounds like a great idea, sounds like it’d be super useful!

The best thing to do to get your voice heard regarding this would be to head over to our Product Ideas board and post a new idea, including as much information as possible for what you’d like to see implemented.

What I would personally do is to use curl -IL your_url to check the exact headers that are returned by the specific URL.

Hope that helps!

- Bobby.
