Get started

Before you use the Content Delivery API for the first time:

  • Contact your Akamai representative to enable it for your account.

  • A contentProviderId is given to the content provider.

  • The content provider must obtain an authorization token using one of the supported flows using the client_id/client_secret from the application created by the CDN operator.

  • Review Get started on tools that Akamai provides for all its APIs.

  • Before you begin any API operations, you must obtain and store the value of the content provider IDs (contentProviderId) that you need from the AMC GUI.

    To obtain content provider IDs, follow these instructions:

    1. Log in to the AMC GUI using an account with LCDN operator privileges. The default administrator account is co@domain-name, where domain-name specifies the domain assigned to the AMC. Use the password you configured when you installed and configured the AMC. The CDN Health dashboard opens.

    2. In the CDN Health dashboard, click Configure and under Content Delivery select Content Providers.

    3. In the Content Provider Management page, mouse over the name of a content provider to view the content provider ID.

    4. Store the value of the content provider IDs.
