Purge URL

The Purge URL API endpoint gives your team the ability to purge a specific URL from Huckabuy’s Edge Cache locations. It can be requested with either a URL or an array of URLs in the request body. Each URL will be purged and subsequently re-rendered & cached.

It will NOT:

  • Remove a URL from Google’s (or other search-engines’) Index
  • Remove a URL from Huckabuy’s own index of your website

Example Use-cases

If you’ve recently deployed an update to a page and require that visitors see the latest version immediately, purging the cached version will remove any old versions from our edge-caches. This can be useful if you found a typo or deployed a hotfix for a CSS/JS error.
