Edit an include


Includes are Limited Availability

This feature is still in Limited Availability. If you're interested and would like to use includes now, contact your Akamai account team.

Some behaviors and products such as Adaptive Media Delivery, IoT Edge Connect, and Progressive Media Download may not be supported with includes yet. Adding them to an include results in an error. To use the unsupported behavior, add it to the parent property's rule tree instead.

Includes are compatible with all security products. However, note that you can't use includes to split up the security configurations maintained outside of Property Manager.

We are continually updating Property Manager behaviors to make them work in includes.

In the Property Manager Editor, you can view general information about your include and check what parent properties it's used in. Under Include version information, take note of the Rule format. Make sure you use the same rule format in your include and its parent properties.

Optional: Create local user-defined variables

Each include can inherit global variables passed from the parent configuration and also have its own local variables. You create and use local user-defined variables similarly to the global variables you declare for properties. See Variables overview, User-defined variables and other topics in the Variables section for the general conventions that apply to both global and local variables.

Set the include's rule tree

In the Include Configuration Settings panel, set the rules you want to reuse in multiple parent properties or the ones you want to apply to a microservice, depending on the include type you selected. Include configurations work the same way as property configurations, so you can refer to the general sections for rules, behaviors, and matches for all the details.

Once you finish editing your include, click Save. Now you're ready to activate your include.
