    Hello,
    Can anyone explain what does "disable"​ site do? How does traffic to site goes in this case?

    Hi Alexander,
    According to our product documentation:

    When a site is disabled, DNS resolves the site's CNAME into the origin IP address for the site instead of into one of the Imperva PoP's IP addresses. As a result, traffic bypasses Imperva and is routed directly to your origin servers.

    Does this answer your question?

    Does disabling and then reenabling need DNS changes? I am expecting the web traffic to simply passthrough imperva WAF, when it is disabled. Is that understanding correct?
