Response Header IF statement problem

Maybe that’s the problem, I want to disable cache if the response header is true but not do anything if it is false. I can change my logic in creating this header to only have it on pages where cache should be disabled if it is not possible to use an IF statement around it. I will post my config here once I get rid of the sensitive things, but the confusing thing is that it worked, then it stopped working.

    I thought you wanted to disable cache on the existence of a response header,
    not a request header.
    Otherwise I think we need more information to understand, such as how are
    you testing? Perhaps paste your full configuration here after removing any
    sensitive text.
