POST/api/1.2/user/current/jobs

Invalidating content on the CDN is sometimes necessary when the origin was mis-configured and something is cached in the CDN that needs to be removed. Given the size of a typical Traffic Control CDN and the amount of content that can be cached in it, removing the content from all the caches may take a long time. To speed up content invalidation, Traffic Ops will not try to remove the content from the caches, but it makes the content inaccessible using the regex_revalidate ATS plugin (https://docs.trafficserver.apache.org/en/latest/admin-guide/plugins/regex_revalidate.en.html). This forces a revalidation of the content, rather than a new get.

Note

This method forces a HTTP revalidation of the content, and not a new GET - the origin needs to support revalidation according to the HTTP/1.2 specification, and send a 200 OK or 304 Not Modified as applicable.

Authentication Required: Yes

Role(s) Required: None

Request Properties

Parameter Type Description
dsId string Unique Delivery Service ID
regex string

Path Regex this should be a PCRE compatible regular expression for the path to match for forcing the revalidation. Be careful to only match on the content you need to remove - revalidation is an expensive operation for many origins, and a simple /.* can cause an overload condition of the origin.

Examples: /path/to/content/.* /path/to/content/.*\.jpg

startTime string Start Time is the UTC time when revalidation rule will be made active. Populate with the current time to schedule ASAP. This value cannot be more than 2 days in the future.
ttl int Time To Live is how long the revalidation rule will be active for in hours. It usually makes sense to make this the same as the Cache-Control header from the origin which sets the object time to live in cache (by max-age or Expires). Entering a longer TTL here will make the caches do unnecessary work.

Request Example

{
       "dsId": 9999,
       "regex": "/path/to/content/.*\.jpg",
       "startTime": "2015-01-27 11:08:37",
