In some cases, Cloudflare users may find that their Cloudflare settings are blocking Alli from reading their site to create tasks and recommendations.

Here are the firewall rule settings you will need to set in your Cloudflare dashboard to make sure everything goes smoothly:

  1. Login to your Cloudflare admin dashboard.

    https://dash.cloudflare.com/login
    Email: your elected email address
    Password: your elected password

  2. In your Cloudflare dashboard, look for the "Firewall" tab and click on it.

  3. In your Firewall page, look for the "Firewall Rules" tab and click on it.

  4. Enter a Rule name;

    Type in, Alli Self-Optimizing SEO (or whatever name you want!)

  5. Set the incoming requests to match;

    Field: User Agent
    Operator: contains
    Value: AlliAI

  6. The "Expression Preview" should read as,

    ( http.user_agent contains "AlliAI" )

  7. Select 'then' action to: Allow

  8. Review once more the Firewall Rule Settings, if you have all correctly setup click the "Deploy" button at the bottom-right corner of the page to save the settings.
