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 set to Allow, DELETE requests pass to the origin, but the content isn’t cached.

When you don't specify this behavior at all or set it to Deny, ​Akamai​ edge servers deny all DELETE requests to this property with a 501 Not Implemented response.
