I’m using Fastly in front of S3 to serve a static site. Since I’m using S3 as an origin via its REST API (for TLS between Fastly and S3) I need to setup things like courtesy redirects for
example.com/dirname (note absence of trailing
My current plan is to add objects to my bucket named after each directory which contain a header giving the key of the corresponding
index.html object that should be served.
This means that my Fastly/VCL config needs to check the header of the initial backend response and conditionally request and return a different object from S3.
What’s the best way to do this with Fastly configs? Do I need to setup custom VCL?
