Welcome to API Keys and Traffic Management

❗️

This is the documentation for API Keys and Traffic Management v1, which will soon be retired.
Check out the enhanced version of our product, which includes new operations and is more user-friendly.
See API Keys and Traffic Management v2 User Guide.

Create and manage API keys inside higher-level units called key collections with the API keys and traffic management application. Define throttling counters to limit incoming API traffic on a per second basis. At the key collection level, you can limit the number of successful requests that individual API keys in the collection can make and you can edit access control lists (ACL) associated with your API endpoints and resources.

To access the application:

  1. Log in to ​Akamai Control Center​ with your username and password.

  2. Go to > CDN > API definitions > API keys & traffic management.
