Reporting dimensions (ACE)

Here you'll find a list of the dimensions available for use with the various reports dashboards for ​Akamai​ Cloud Embed (ACE—formerly "Wholesale Delivery").

Where can I use these?

All of the widgets revealed in a report's tab use one or more of these dimensions by default. However, some of the widgets let you view custom data via the Analyze data (IMAGE_STUB) functionality, and you can add or remove dimensions. See Analyze data shown in a report for full details.

The dimensions


The actual dimension name may differ slightly if you're using the Media Delivery Reports API v1, rather than the ​Akamai​ Control Center interface. The table that follows points out any known differences and also includes the unique idused in the API. You can also run the List Akamai Cloud Embed data stores operation in the API and review the response to see the proper values.
