Akamaize Tag

Specify HTML tags and replacement rules for hostnames used in conjunction with the Akamaizer behavior. Contact ​Akamai​ Professional Services for help configuring this behavior.

How it works

With this behavior enabled, you can replace all strings that match a specified regular expression with a specified replacement string. Additional parameters specify options that modify the matching operation and a time-out interval if no match is found.

Features and options


What it does


Matched hostname

Specifies the hostname to match on as a Perl-compatible regular expression.

Replacement hostname

Specifies the replacement hostname for the tag to use.

Replacement Scope

Specifies the part of HTML content the Tags refer to.

  • **Attribute**. When Tags refers to a tag/attribute pair, the match only applies to the attribute.
  • **URL Attribute**. Functions the same as **Attribute**, but applies when the attribute value is a URL, in which case, it converts to an absolute URL prior to substitution.
  • **Block**. Substitutes within the Tags contents, but not within any nested tags.
  • **Page**. Ignores the Tags field and performs the substitution on the entire page.

  • A
  • A/href
  • AREA
