Get started

To configure this API for the first time:

  • You need different permissions to access API functions. You can manage permissions in ​Control Center​. Learn more about the access control model.

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

  • Contact your Akamai representative if you do not have your account's contractId. This required parameter is used in each API request.

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

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.
