Create an EdgeWorker ID

Before you begin make sure you have an authentication token for the EdgeWorkers API. Your administrator can create an API client in Control Center for the EdgeWorkers service. Make sure you replace the <access token> with the OPEN APIs section from your .edgerc file.

Go to Akamai CLI for EdgeWorkers for an overview of commands you can use to manage your EdgeWorkers.

  1. Use this command to verify that you have access to the groupId you want to use.

    For more information on Groups and Permissions see Identity and Access Management documentation.

akamai edgeworkers list-groups [options] [group-identifier]

📘

If you don't see the groupId you want to use or if you received an error the likely cause is that your access token does not have the proper permissions. For more information on Groups and Permissions see Identity and Access Management documentation or your ​Akamai​ Administrator.

  1. Use this command to create a new EdgeWorker ID.
akamai edgeworkers register <group-identifier> <edgeworker-name>
  • Replace <group-identifier> with the groupID for your Access Group.

  • Replace <edgeworker-name> with Hello World.

    You will use this name to select the EdgeWorker in the Property Manager behavior.

  1. Next, you'll be prompted to enter a contract id.

  2. Use this command to select a contract id.

[1] M-SAMPLECONTRACT1
[0] CANCEL

Please select from the above contract ids [1/0]: 1
You have selected M-SAMPLECONTRACT1
  1. Select a resource tier available on the contract you selected in the previous step.

[1] 100
[2] 200
[0] CANCEL

Please select from the above resource tier ids [1, 2, 0]: 1
  1. Use this command to verify that the EdgeWorker Identifier was created successfully:
akamai edgeworkers list-ids <edgeworker-identifier>
  • Replace <edgeworker-identifier> with the ID of your Hello World EdgeWorker.

If you successfully created the EdgeWorker ID, you should see the identifier for your Hello World EdgeWorker in the list.

  1. Next, follow these instructions to add the EdgeWorkers behavior.
