Content Characteristics

With this behavior enabled, you can define specific information about your content to optimize its delivery.

How it works

Depending on the use case, this behavior can optimize delivery of various types of content, ranging from streamable videos to downloadable objects. By specifying characteristics such as content size, type, or popularity, you can designate the content that you want this behavior to apply to.

This is a mandatory behavior in the context of an Adaptive Media Delivery (AMD), Download Delivery or Object Delivery property. You can't delete this behavior from the Default Rule. An error message is revealed if you delete it, and you need to re-add it. However, you can also include this behavior in a lower-level, or nested custom rule. This lets you override what's set in the Default Rule for this behavior. You can set different match criteria to be met to apply this behavior, instead.

The prerequisites for use, options, and default settings vary by product. See the applicable product's documentation for these details as well as some examples of its use:
