What is the usage of reference ID in the purge request's response?



  • Peter Wohlers


    The PurgeID is generated when the purging system receives the purge request.

    It can be used internally by Fastly admins to verify if a particular purge request was received by any particular cache node, so it would really only come into play if you thought something hadn't purged properly. It does not have the ability to convey any data about the objects being purged. i.e. it's a marker for tracking the purge request only.
