Upgrading the Enforcer

  • Dark

Article Summary

To upgrade to a newer version of the HUMAN Fastly Enforcer, email Support or contact your customer success representative via Slack.
You will be asked to provide the following information for HUMAN to start work on upgrading the VCL:

  • Your current version of VCL
  • Copies of the following files:
    • main.vcl
    • px_custom.vcl
    • px_configs.vcl
    • px.vcl
  • Application name/ID

An alternative upgrade process would be to provide the Fastly API token with engineering permissions to our solution architects team to enable HUMAN to auto upgrade your VCL files directly in your Fastly account.

Upgrading to Fastly 9.0.0 and above

If your current Enforcer version is below 9.0.0, in addition to the above upgrade process you must:

  • Add HTTPS loggers that send activities to HUMAN's servers. For more information, see Installing the Enforcer.
  • Delete the PX-Syslog syslog logger, which is no longer in use.
  • Delete the PX-Syslog-Condition condition, which is no longer in use.
  • If you implemented the px_custom_activity_headers function in the px_custom.vcl file, refactor it to fit the new format.
    See the comments as example.
