You can configure extra files to include and if your app's file are on a CDN, you can configure the CDN url.

The configuration is done in the ember-cli-build.js file:

const EmberApp = require('ember-cli/lib/broccoli/ember-app')

module.exports = function(defaults) {
  var app = new EmberApp(defaults, {
    'asset-cache': {
      // which asset files to include, glob paths are allowed!
      // defaults to `['assets/**/*']`
      include: [

      // which asset files to exclude, glob paths are allowed!
      exclude: [

      // manually include extra external assets
      manual: [

      // Changing this version number will bust the cache, but you probably do not
      // want to be doing this manually, but rather using `versionStrategy` as
      // explained here
      version: '1',

      // if your files are on a CDN, put the url of your CDN here
      // can be absolute or relative
      // overwritten by `fingerprint.prepend`
      prepend: '',

      // mode of the fetch request. Use 'no-cors' when you are fetching resources
      // cross origin (different domain) that do not send CORS headers
      requestMode: 'cors',

      // Prevent errors (status of 400 or greater) on a single file
      // from not updating other files that have no issues
      lenientErrors: false

  return app.toTree();

Note that setting requestMode to 'no-cors' will have some drawbacks, like not being able to distinguish between successful and failed responses. Use it only when needed.
