When you connect Cloudflare with Zyppy, you can publish your changes instantly – without ever touching code or updating your CMS. You can also take advantage of other integrations, such as creating dynamic Zyppy sitemaps that live on your site and are automatically updated with Google Search Console.
Here’s how you do it.
If your site isn’t already on Cloudflare, you can sign up for a free account.
Workers are a type of code that allows Zyppy to “work” with Cloudflare, but first you have to enable them.
⚠️ Note: To avoid free plan limits, we strongly suggest subscribing to the Workers Paid plan for a minimum $5 USD per month. For lower-traffic sites this may not be necessary, but it helps ensure no interruption in Zyppy services.
If your site already uses Cloudflare workers, no worries. Please read our guide – Using Zyppy With Existing Cloudflare Workers.
Follow Cloudflare’s own instructions to generate an API token:
1. Log in to the Cloudflare dashboard.
2. Under theMy Profiledropdown, clickMy Profile.
3. Click theAPI tokenstab.
4. Click theCreate Tokenbutton. You will see theCreate Tokenscreen.
5. Next, use the “Edit Cloudflare Workers” template.
6. On the next screen, start by simply leaving the default settings the same. Then add permission by clicking “+ Add more” with the following parameters:
This helps Zyppy to determine your Cloudflare usage.
7. Choose the correct “Account Resources” (typically all) and “All Zones” for the Zone Resources.
7. Finally, hit “Continue to Summary” and “Create Token.”
8. Important: Copy your token and enter it into Zyppy. For security reasons, this token won’t be shown again. If you lose it, you can “roll” the token from your token dashboard and it will generate a new one.
9. Enter the token in your Zyppy settings.
You can find the Account ID in the sidebar of the Cloudflare Dashboard. Select your site from the dashboard to and look to the lower right.
You have now connected Cloudflare to Zyppy, and may experience all their combined powers and possibilities. Congrats!
