(this is a cross-posting of a question I asked on Server Fault: ColdFusion fails to include custom HTTP response header set in IIS 8.5 - Server Fault)
I have a Windows 2012 R2 server running IIS 8.5 and ColdFusion 11. Under a specific directory ("mydirectory") I added an HTTP Response Header (Name: X-ResponseHeader, Value: Test). The resulting web.config section looks like this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<add name="X-ResponseHeader" value="Test" />
I created several test files:
curl -I to request the files and examine the response headers:
Additionally, a request for a non-existent .cfm file does not include the header, but a request for a non-existent .png file does. Therefore I suspect that the ColdFusion handler is ignoring or removing the header, but I am not sure why.
Also of note: if I set a custom header at the site level in IIS, rather than at the folder level, the custom header is included in all cases.
Which coldfusion 11 update are you running?
ColdFusion 11 Update 7
I can no longer replicate this behavior. This was the bane of my existence 2 weeks ago and now it seems to be working...!
I am able to replicate it on CF11 with IIS7.5
I notice that the default document shows the header when called. If you defined the page (i.e. page.cfm) the header doesnt show.
