Using _redirects to mask CDN URLs

I had thought to use redirects to take anything from our /images/content/ directory and redirect it to a CDN fetch URL, resulting in local paths returning CDN images.

Does the recent change to redirects domain requirements now prevent this?

Hiya @lukeoliff,

Should be possible to do that, something like:

/images/content/* https://otherservice/:splat 200
or
/images/content/* https://otherservice/:splat 200!
(second needed in case you have a copy of the images here but don’t want to serve them for some reason, cf https://docs.netlify.com/routing/redirects/rewrites-proxies/#shadowing)

What happens when you try?
