Get started

To configure this API for the first time:

  • 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 named Identity Management: User Administration, and set the access level to ADMIN.

  • First-time users need to create an API client with access to this API through the Identity Management application in Akamai Control Center. Alternatively, administrators can create an API client on behalf of the user in the Identity Management application. Then, the user can generate credentials through the Identity Management application in Control Center.

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.
