Get started

​​ Purpose

The purpose of Get started content is to help users go from not using a product to successfully configuring and setting up.

Title: Should be “Get started”

Prerequisites: Which may include:

  • An active zone
  • Certain subscription / enabled product / plan
  • Other tasks you might need to do to set up other things (your origin) outside of CF
  • Do you need to make certain decisions before you start?

Steps: Steps that lead someone to whatever would be considered Product Adoption.

  • Often, these can be partialized files from your How-to pages.
  • This is usually the bare minimum (a single Bot Management FW rule) + the most general use case for a product.
  • This may at times contradict the flow in the Cloudflare dashboard at times. If it does, consider raising it up to the Product team.

​​ Optional components

Next steps: Point someone towards additional configuration options.
