Activate or deactivate a property

This operation creates a new property activation, which deactivates any currently active version. After a necessary delay, this activates your property version's rule tree and set of hostnames across Akamai's network of edge servers, modifying how your edge content responds to end-user requests.

Note: To reduce errors, avoid calling PAPI with separate clients on the same data. Avoid frequently polling status values. Instead, progressively increase the delay between calls.

If there's a problem with the property you activated, you may have the option to fall back to the previous version. To build the request object, go to the activationLink from the activation's response and note down the fallbackVersion value. Within an hour of activating, POST another activation with propertyVersion set to the version you noted down and useFastFallback set to true. This disables the current activation and falls back to the specified version. A fallback takes a few seconds, but the option is available only if there have been no changes to the set of property hostnames, as indicated by canFastFallback.
