"asynchronous post "


Hi all ,
My js sends heavy post requests to my origin .l have a requirement where i would want the edge to answer instantly with 200 , and asynchronously send the payload to the origin with as much latency as needed . the reason for this is not to hinder browser on my customers sites … ( reduce latency)
any way to get this done ?


Hi @yoni – at the moment, this isn’t possible. This would require splitting one request into two parallel processes within our caching state machine, which isn’t something we’re able to do at the moment.

If latency is your main issue, try enabling shielding on your service if you haven’t done so already. The shielding process of POP<>POP connections will noticeably reduce global latency on POSTs or other cache misses.
