As part of our upcoming security enhancements to cloud.gov, we intend to deprecate customer usage of the *.fr.cloud.gov domain as of December 3, 2020. Customer applications will remain accessible on the newer *.app.cloud.gov domain, which has been available for usage since October 2016. The purpose of the deprecation is to allow additional WAF hardening of core components within cloud.gov’s administrative tooling.
Customers can check their current application routes by running the following command in each organization and space they have access to (a space must be set for this command to work):
$ cf routes
Customers that are currently using the *.app.cloud.gov routes should not make any changes and will not be impacted by this update.
For applications operating under *.fr.cloud.gov routes, a replacement route under *.app.cloud.gov should be created. All traffic including browser, API, and CDN should be reconfigured to point at the new endpoint URL.
Create and map a new route using the *.app.cloud.gov domain with the following command:
$ cf map-route $APP_NAME app.cloud.gov
If you need to specify a host name, path, and/or a port, you can do so with additional options. Please refer to the Cloud Foundry documentation on mapping routes.
Once the new route is configured for any of your affected applications, remove the old route in each organization and space with the following command:
$ cf delete-route fr.cloud.gov
For more information, please refer to the Cloud Foundry documentation on deleting routes.
Traffic that is currently routed through *.fr.cloud.gov must be reconfigured by December 3, 2020 to avoid experiencing downtime from enhanced security configurations.
