When TYPO3 is behind an Azure's CDN Profile, this extension is a perfect companion for you.

This extension hides the complexity of Azure's CDN API to purge caches.


You can install this extension by using composer:

composer req b13/azure-purge


By default, EXT:azure-purge ships with a azure:cdnpurge CLI command to purge a full CDN profile or a specific URL within the CDN profile.

It is possible to purge a single or multiple URLs

./vendor/bin/typo3 azure:cdnpurge --url=/page1 --url=/page2

or purge a whole CDN Profile

./vendor/bin/typo3 azure:cdnpurge --profile=abcdef

Integration into TYPO3 Backend

EXT:azure-purge can be used in conjunction with TYPO3's Proxy Cache Manager Extension.

Using the Azure CDN Adapter for EXT:proxycachemanager flushes page caches directly when modifying a page. This is perfect if you're dealing with Azure CDN that not just caches your static assets but also your pages.

For this, ensure to set the class \B13\AzurePurge\Provider\AzureProxyProvider in the settings of EXT:proxycachemanager.


This extension purges CDN caches via cURL requests wrapped in the Guzzle API (bundled in TYPO3) instead of using the CLI binary az as requested by most examples.

For this reason, a OAuth Client with a Client ID, Tenant ID and a Secret must be created within Azure Portal first.

TYPO3 then creates an Access Token (oauth2/authorize), which is then used to purge content on the Azure CDN Profile.

Azure thus requires:

  • Azure App ID / Client ID
  • Azure Tenant ID
  • Azure Client Secret


  • Azure Subscription
  • Azure Resource Group
  • Azure CDN Profile
  • Azure CDN Endpoint
  • Optional: FrontDoor ID

All need to be provided via Environment variables:


Support for Azure FrontDoors

See https://docs.microsoft.com/de-de/rest/api/frontdoorservice/frontdoor/endpoints/purge-content

Ensure to set the environment variable AZURE_FRONTDOOR to the Front Door Name.

Using multiple sections / CDN endpoints in Site Configuration

This isn't implemented yet.
