Allow DELETE

By default, ​Akamai​ honors GET, HEAD, and OPTIONS requests to your origin. Include this behavior to allow HTTP requests using the DELETE method.

How it works

When enabled, DELETE requests pass to the origin, but the content isn’t cached.
When disabled, ​Akamai​ edge servers deny all DELETE requests to this property:

  • WAF. Denies with a 403 response.
  • Delivery configurations. Denies with a 501 response.
