    I am running my site against and am getting the message that I should Specify a Vary: Accept-Encoding header for the Kendo CDN files, which I am referending using https://. Attached image shows the message I'm getting.

    Am I able to do this and, if so, where and how?

    The recommendation seems valid for dynamic content, but it doesn't make sense in the context of the CDN.

    Resources here are static and are always served with the same encoding, regardless of what the client requests.
    Therefore it's not possible to get the "wrong" encoding from a cached version.

    I hope this makes sense.
