Proxying using Netlify Redirects
Netlify Redirects can be used to proxy to external services.
In the below example, requests to
/api are proxied to
/api/* https://api.example.com/:splat 200
Here is an example that proxies a JS script to another location:
/js/script.js https://domain.com/tracker.js 200
Here is an example that combines the two examples above and this one is very useful for analytics tools:
/api https://tracking-tool.com/api 200
/js/script.js https://tracking-tool.com/tracker.js 200
This example is useful because it can:
- Bypass CORS because the requests are from the same origin.
- Bypass blockers because the URLs don't have tracker-like keywords.
