Dispatcher and Cache-Control mod_expires

Avatar

Level 2

In the release notes for Dispatcher v4.3.3, it mentions an improvement:

  • DISP-818 - mod_expires adds Cache-Control headers for uncacheable content

Does anyone know what this improvement actually does? We are trying to use the Apache mod_headers to add Cache-Control to certain responses, but it does not work if the request contains query parameters. If we remove the query parameters from the request, or we change the cache-control header to another header (like cache-control2) then it works.

DISP-818 removed the Cache-Control header from requests with query parameters

 

BUT -- this introduced some unintended things which are currently being handled under the open JIRA GRANITE-29891

Actually the mod_expires always added headers to any response, even if this response was supposed to be uncacheable.

And technically (according to the RFCs) any request containing a query string must not be cached.

@Jörg_HohIn my case it is still not adding Cache-Control for uncacheable (denied in cache.any) request.

I have used

ExpiresByType application/javascript "access plus 1 month"

 But as soon as I add the entry to deny caching, the Cache-Control header gets removed from the final response.

Cache Control headers are different from Expiration headers, and IIRC they can co-exist do not influence each other.
