To configure this API for the first time:

  • Make sure DataStream is in your contract. You can find the list of products within your account in ​Control Center​ under Contracts. Contact your ​Akamai​ support team to enable DataStream if necessary.

  • You need different permissions to access API functions. You can manage these permissions in ​Control Center​. 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 called Datastream Config and set the access level to READ-WRITE.

  • To start collecting and streaming logs using this API, enable the datastream behavior in Property Manager.

  • To successfully run this API, you may need to access other APIs, such as the Property Manager API, Identity and Access Management API, and Contract API.

The code examples shown in this API documentation are for reference but do not 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, refer to Authenticate with EdgeGrid.
