How to use reports

Access

You can access reports from the https://control.akamai.com/apps/reports/.

You can also access reports from the ​Akamai​ Control Center homepage, by clicking Reporting card. This card offers a quick view into your Today's traffic metrics: edge, origin and midgress hits, and offload. The card links to the full Today's Traffic report and to the new Reporting overview page.

Expand the Reporting card and click Go to Reporting overview.

From the Reporting overview page you can access your reports and common services. The reports are grouped under the following categories: Cross-Product, Web Performance, Media Delivery and Media Security. You can filter some reports by metrics and dimensions (for example, Country or Response Code).

Find a report type

Reports are available based on the services you use and your permissions in Control Center. All reports that fit these criteria are available in the Reports menu.

In the Report field, enter any text.

Reports that match the text appear in the menu. For example, if you want a report on an image optimization service, you can enter the word image and find the Adaptive Image Compression report.

You can also just scroll through the entire list of reports.

View a report

You can choose a report type and then customize it to see data you need.

  1. From the Report menu, select a report you want to view.

  2. In the left filter panel and make selections to refine the report data.
    At least one required filter is available.

  3. Select a date range and click Apply.

Save a report

If you'd like to view the same report regularly, you can save the report with a name you'll recognize. When you reopen the saved report you'll get all the previously selected filters.

📘

You can save up to 100 reports. You can overwrite the existing report. If you overwrite a scheduled report, it will not be automatically updated. The report is visible only to the person who created it.

  1. Open a report you want to save. See View a report.

  2. Click the gear icon and select Save report as.

  3. Enter a report name you'll recognize that's fewer than 255 characters.

  4. Click Save.
    The report is saved, and available from the Saved reports menu.

📘

If your access changes — for example, if you no longer have access to a CP code filter included in your saved report—the report displays with the revised filter list.

Rename a saved report

You can rename a saved report.

If you have scheduled delivery for a saved report and rename it, or otherwise change the parameters, the scheduled report will not be automatically updated.

  2. Click the gear icon and select Rename report.

  3. Enter a name you'll recognize that's fewer than 255 characters.

Delete a saved report

If you have scheduled delivery for a saved report and delete it, or otherwise change the parameters, you will continue to receive the scheduled report.

  1. From the Saved reports menu, select the saved report you want to delete.

  2. Click the gear icon and select Delete report.

  3. Click Delete.
    The report is deleted, and no longer available from the Saved reports menu.

Get data from the API

The API button is available for most report widgets. It opens the exact API call you can use to obtain the report widget data that you're seeing in the UI. It also shows a link to the relevant API documentation for more guidance, making it even easier to start integrating with our API.

  1. Click the API calls icon.

  2. From the pop-up window, copy the API call to your API tool.
