View a configuration

When you enable Edge IP Binding for a property hostname to edge hostname association ("property hostname"), various settings are configured and applied, behind the scenes. In the Edge IP Binding tool you can click a configuration in the table or click under Actions to view these settings.

Basic Settings

As the name implies, these are basic settings applied for the Edge IP Binding configuration.

  • Product. The property configuration was set up for this product, and Edge IP Binding has been enabled for it. Current products that support Edge IP Binding include Adaptive Media Delivery, Download Delivery, Object Delivery, or Internet of Things.

  • Contract. This is the unique ID assigned to your ‚ÄčAkamai‚Äč contract that includes Edge IP Binding and the ‚ÄčAkamai‚Äč product it's supporting.

  • Edge hostname. The resulting edge hostname after you created a property hostname to edge hostname association and enabled Edge IP Binding for it. For example, this is your "vanity hostname" that users use to access your content, with the ‚ÄčAkamai‚Äč edge hostname appended to it.

  • EIP Binding Hostname. The property hostname you applied when defining the property hostname to edge hostname association for use with Edge IP Binding. For example, this could be your "vanity hostname" if you used it when creating the property hostname.

  • EIP Binding CPCode. A Content Provider (CP) code is a numeric ID that's used to identify your content for billing, logging, reporting, and cache purging. This is the specific CP code assigned to this application of Edge IP Binding.

  • Is Secure. This is revealed as Enabled if the property hostname to edge hostname association has been set up for secure (HTTPS) delivery. Disabled if it's been set up for non-secure HTTP.

  • Serial. When your Edge IP Binding configuration is set up for HTTPS delivery (Is Secure = enabled), a slot value is incorporated via the associated security certificate. This value is used to generate the three-digit Serial revealed here. In turn, the Serial is used along with Maprule Settings in the Forward Host hostname. Requests to your Edge IP Binding network IP addresses are forwarded to this hostname on the ‚ÄčAkamai‚Äč edge to obtain content.

  • IP Version. The IP version you set up for use with the property hostname‚ÄĒeither IPv4, only or Dual Stack (IPv4 + IPv6).

Autonomous System Number Split Details

If you've enabled Autonomous System Number Split for an Edge IP Binding configuration, its settings are revealed here. Complete details on setup can be found in How to add Autonomous System Number Split for Edge IP Binding.

  • ASN Whitelists. This is a list of individual autonomous system numbers that represent autonomous system map regions that will use Edge IP Binding. When a request containing any of these ASNs in its IP address targets your Edge hostname, Edge IP Binding is applied.

  • Non-EIP Target. This is the Edge hostname that all other requests are routed through to deliver traditional content (non-ZRB).

Host Headers

These are the hostnames that your end users target to access your content for use with Edge IP Binding.

When you set up a property hostname, you apply one or more hostnames to create the edge hostname that's ultimately used to resolve requests to the ‚ÄčAkamai‚Äč edge‚ÄĒor, in this case, to the Edge IP Binding network. (This value is typically the "vanity hostname" end users use to access your content.) These values are included in the "host header" that's read to interpret these hostnames from requests and resolve them to the edge hostname.

  • Match Type. Requests for hostnames can be either an Exact match, requiring the full hostname to be present in the request, or a Suffix, in which case the request must include the hostname as a suffix in the path of the request. For example, if "baseball.com" was included with a Match Type of Suffix, a request to https://sports-world-2019.baseball.com would match. If the Match Type was set to Exact, only requests to https://baseball.com would match.

By default, all hostnames use Exact as the Match Type when you enable Edge IP Binding in Property Manager. If you need to change this to Suffix, contact your account representative.

Advanced Settings

These settings consist of the following:

  • Maprule Settings. Maprules are fixed settings that are tied to your selected product (Adaptive Media Delivery, for example). They consist of a specific Maprule ID and Maprule Name that are both used along with the Serial to generate the Forward Host hostname. Requests to your Edge IP Binding network IP addresses are forwarded to this hostname on the ‚ÄčAkamai‚Äč edge to obtain content.

  • IP Assignments. These are the IP addresses that have been provisioned for use with Edge IP Binding and the names of the Cloud and Cloud Zone for each. For example, you would communicate these addresses with your ISP for use with zone-rated billing.
