Route My Domains Through Salesforce Edge (Previously Released Critical Update)

We’re accelerating domain requests for My Domains. With this update, you keep the same My Domain address, but requests go through Salesforce Edge. Salesforce Edge uses machine-learning technology to improve connectivity and performance. You can acknowledge this update to let Salesforce move your org’s My Domain to the new service before the July 2020 auto-activation date. This critical update was first made available in Winter ’20.

Where: This change applies to Lightning Experience and Salesforce Classic in Professional, Enterprise, Performance, Unlimited, and editions.

When: You can acknowledge this update in Winter ’20. Otherwise, we auto-activate it on July 13, 2020.

Who: Only customers with a My Domain or Custom Domain can be moved to Salesforce Edge. Salesforce Government Cloud orgs are currently excluded from the move to Salesforce Edge.

How: To acknowledge this critical update, from Setup, enter Critical Updates in the Quick Find box, and select Critical Updates. Next to Route My Domains Through Salesforce Edge, click Acknowledge.
