doctl compute cdn get <cdn-id> [flags]




Lists the following details for the specified Content Delivery Network (CDNs):

  • The ID for the CDN, in UUID format
  • The fully qualified domain name (FQDN) for the origin server, which provides the content to the CDN. Currently, only Spaces are supported with CDNs.
  • The fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the endpoint from which the CDN-backed content is served.
  • The “Time To Live” (TTL) value for cached content, in seconds. The default is 3,600 (one hour).
  • An optional custom subdomain when the CDN can be accessed
  • The ID of a DigitalOcean-managed TLS certificate used for SSL when a custom subdomain is provided.
  • The date and time when the CDN was created, in ISO8601 date/time format

The Time To Live (TTL) value is the length of time in seconds that a file is cached by the CDN before being refreshed. If a request to access a file occurs after the TTL has expired, the CDN delivers the file by requesting it directly from the origin URL, re-caching the file, and resetting the TTL.


The following example retrieves the origin endpoint, CDN endpoint, and certificate ID for a CDN with the ID 418b7972-fc67-41ea-ab4b-6f9477c4f7d8:

doctl compute cdn get 418b7972-fc67-41ea-ab4b-6f9477c4f7d8 --format ID,Origin,Endpoint,CertificateID
