Get Faster Page Loads in Your Community

Akamai’s content delivery network (CDN) for static Lightning components is now enabled in all new and existing communities. A CDN speeds up page load time by storing cached versions in multiple geographic locations.

Where: This change applies to Lightning communities accessed through Lightning Experience and Salesforce Classic in Essentials, Enterprise, Performance, Unlimited, and Developer editions. This setting doesn't affect any version of the Salesforce app.

How: This setting turns on Lightning CDN delivery for the static JavaScript in the Lightning Component framework. It doesn’t distribute your org’s data or metadata in a CDN. Lightning CDN is different than Communities CDN. See Set Up the Community Cloud Content Delivery Network for more information.


If you experience issues, ensure that is added to any whitelist or firewall that your company operates, and ask your IT department if your company’s firewall blocks Akamai CDN content.
