Help with setting up Downstream Caching

Trying to setup downstream caching for our js scripts. Here is what is required:


  • Set the Edge Control Headers via apache ( since these are java script files)
  • Cache the specific java scripts on the Edge Server for 1 day
  • Cache the specific java scripts on the Browser for 1 hour



Apache setup is as follows: ( For testing we have setup a single js script )


<FilesMatch "load\.js$">

    Header set Edge-Control !no-store

    Header Append Edge-Control max-age=1d

    Header Append Edge-Control downstream-ttl=1h



Current Property Manager Setup:


Downstream Cacheability -> Allow Caching, Cache Lifetime is set to Smaller Value: Origin Header or remaining edge TTL, Send Headers-> send both cache-control and expires


When looking at the curl headers, I see following

Cache-Control: max-age=86400
Expires: Sat, 03 Jun 2017 14:24:34 GMT 
Date: Fri, 02 Jun 2017 14:24:34 GMT


Should not the Expires be only 1 hour?
