Get started

To configure this API for the first time:

  • You need different permissions to access API functions. You can manage these permissions in ‚ÄčControl Center‚Äč. Learn more about the access control model.

  • Before you can use this API, you need to Create authentication credentials.

  • To enable this API, choose the API service named API Definition, and set the access level to READ-WRITE.

  • For the delivery features to be available, add the API Gateway behavior to the property configured for your Web Performance Solutions or web application firewall product and enable the API Gateway feature. For details, see Add API Gateway to your product.

  • Ensure that you have the correct user roles assigned to your account in Control Center: WAF Config or WAF Admin for endpoints, resources, versions, and security features management; API Gateway Administrator for API Gateway delivery features; Bot Manager Config or Bot Manager Feature for resource purpose settings.

The code examples in this API reference don't contain the required authentication code syntax you need to make API calls. To learn how to apply authentication in a variety of programming languages when using Akamai APIs, see Authenticate with EdgeGrid.
