Jul 30, 2020 — New Ion rule sets

The latest Property Manager update includes six new Ion rulesets that you can use to update an existing property configuration. Adding them applies ​Akamai​ recommended settings.

To use these new recommendations, click Add Rule while configuring one of your existing properties.


These rules will become default configurations in an upcoming release.

  • Augment insights. These settings help with monitoring and reporting the delivery of your website or app.

  • Accelerate delivery. These are settings that help improve object delivery performance.

  • Offload origin. These settings help with caching content at the ​Akamai​ edge and in a user's browser.

  • Strengthen security. Settings that minimize the information your website shares with clients and malicious entities to reduce your exposure to threats.

  • Increase availability. These settings help with responses to end users when your origin or third parties are slow or when they're down. This is to help minimize the negative impact on user experience.

  • Minimize payload. These settings help reduce the size of the delivered content and decrease the number of bytes sent by your properties.
