Manage your policy sets and policies

👍

New Policy Manager UI

These instructions reflect the new beta version of Policy Manager. If you are using the original version, some things may have changed. To try the new beta, click Switch to BETA.

To manage your policy sets and policies, log in to ​Akamai Control Center​, then go to > CDN > Image and Video Manager.

Image and Video Manager opens to the Policy Manager page. From here you can select the correct contract and view the list of policy sets. You can filter the list by Image, Video, or Any (both). You can also expand each policy set to see the policies it contains.

Status on staging and production

When a policy set has been expanded to show its policies, you can see each policy's status on staging and production.

A policy can have a status of:

  • Active. The policy is currently in use in the corresponding environment.

  • Pending. The policy is in the process of becoming active in the corresponding environment.

  • Rolling Out. The policy is in the process of being rolled out in that environment. This status exists because you can chose to slowly roll your policy out over a selected span of time. The proportion of images using the new policy slowly increases until one hundred percent is reached. You can click the X to cancel the roll out process.
