We seem to be getting output cache with copies of output from authenticated users (epi editors & admins).
If an authenticated user loaded the page first, it results in public visitors seeing a cached copy of content that has the top-right epi tab.. I've tested this and it is repeatable.
From what I understand the output cache should not store output for authenticated requests.
We haven’t done anything custom with output cache and have simply configured our episerver section like this:
Also, if it helps, here are our CMS packages we’re using:
Any ideas why this might be happening?
Okay, so I should have mentioned we are hosted in DXC which means it has the Cloudflare CDN.
I think the issue was not the output cache, and rather the client cache response header values for pages. I had it set to one hour using the following code:
var timespanExpiry = new TimeSpan(1, 0, 0);
HttpContext.Current.Response.Cache.SetMaxAge(timespanExpiry); // One hour
HttpContext.Current.Response.Cache.SetExpires(DateTime.Now.Add(timespanExpiry)); // One hour
But I think the issue was because I had cache set to "Public", the CDN was storing a copy of it - which when was an authenticated user would have the epi tab. I have changed it to:
And so far the issue has not repeated.
Puh! You got me worried there for a while :)
Nice to hear it's working as intended again. It would have been a bad ass bug otherwise!
Thx for getting back on this one...
