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

How it works

When enabled, PATCH requests pass to the origin, but the content isn’t cached. When disabled, ​Akamai​ edge servers deny all PATCH requests to this property with a 403 response.

You need a Content-Length header

PATCH requests require a Content-Length header, or they result in a 411 Length required error. The error occurs even if the PATCH request doesn’t contain a body. If you enable Allow PATCH, include this header with a request and indicate the size of the message body, in bytes. If the PATCH request doesn't have a body, include the header and set it to 0.
