IoT Edge Connect Dev Relations

With the Internet of Things: Edge Connect product, connected users and devices can communicate on a publish-subscribe basis within reserved namespaces. With this behavior enabled, ​Akamai​-external clients can use developer test accounts in a shared environment.

How it works

In conjunction with the JWT behavior, this behavior lets you use your own JSON Web Tokens in your requests, or requests generated by ​Akamai​. You can either enable the default JWT server for your test configuration by setting the authentication endpoint to a default path, or specify custom settings for your JWT server and the authentication endpoint.
