The Property Manager API (PAPI) offers a programmatic interface to manage how Akamai edge servers process requests, responses, and objects served over the Akamai platform. A distributed property configuration collects all the rules for how to process end-user requests for your web assets. Like Property Manager in Akamai Control Center, this API lets you modify your property configurations and activate them on Akamai staging or production networks. The API allows you to access the same features rapidly and flexibly using your own tools. With PAPI, you can generate properties, associate them with dynamically generated hostnames, and create new CP codes to report on your content's traffic. PAPI also provides bulk update capabilities for modifying and activating many properties at once, and includes that let you split huge property configurations into smaller, reusable chunks.
