Refetching is a function through which, after content is invalidated via a PURGE, you force the object to be requested again from the content-invalidation agent running on the CDN nodes.

That way, when a real user request comes in, that object will already be in the cache and you won’t have to go get it from the origin.

You can do a refetch via API or from our dashboard, as explained in this link.

The BAN invalidation method is not compatible with refetching.
