Configure the Phased Release behavior

In Property Manager, behaviors apply certain features to your configuration. Behaviors help shape how requests passing through the ​Akamai​ network are handled and processed.

How to

  1. Access Property Manager configurations associated with the selected ​Akamai Control Center​ account. Go to > CDN > Properties (or just enter Properties in the search box).

    The Property Groups page opens.

  2. Select the property and version you want to add your Cloudlet to.

  3. Click Add Behavior, then select Phased Release.

  4. Complete the following fields:



Standard Fields


Set to On to enable Phased Release.

Policy Name

Select an existing Cloudlets policy to use with this behavior. You create policies in Cloudlets Policy Manager.

Instance Label

Enter the label to use to distinguish this Phased Release policy from others in the same property.

Population Membership Fields

Population Membership

Select whether to store population data in a cookie. Options include: Is Random Every Time (default), Is Permanent, Expires On Browser Close, Expires at Fixed Date/Time, and Expires After a Duration.

Expire At

If you selected Expires at Fixed Date/Time, select the date and time when membership will expire.

Expire After

If you selected Expires After a Duration, enter the number of seconds, minutes, hours, or days when membership will expire.

Extend Membership

If you selected Expires After a Duration, choose whether to refresh the population cookie with each request. Selecting Yes extends the duration of population membership.

Failover Management Fields

Enable Failover

Select whether to fail over from the alternate Conditional Origin to the origin determined by the property. The failover will occur when the alternate origin returns an error code.

Failure Response Codes

Enter the HTTP response codes that signal a failure at the alternate Conditional Origin. These codes initiate the failover process. When entering multiple codes, use a space or comma as a delimiter.

Duration (sec)

Select the number of seconds to wait after the first failure is detected before failing over to the alternate origin. Set to zero (0) to always attempt to access the alternate origin.

  1. Click Save.

  2. Activate the newly updated property.
