What do the simulate, block and challenge options mean for the WAF?

The Web Application Firewall allows you the following choices for behavior:

  • Simulate: Logs the event and does not block or challenge the visitor (you can still decide to set to a block or challenge after review of the event).
  • Block: Block will block visitors from that IP from accessing the site.
  • Challenge: Will display a challenge (captcha) page before the visitor can enter the site.
Still not finding what you need?

The CloudFlare team is here to help. 95% of questions can be answered using the search tool, but if you can’t find what you need, submit a support request.
