- SPOF protection moves a call for a script to the background if it impacts page loading.
- SPOF protection intervenes when a script exceeds a timeout value, which adjusts automatically in response to network conditions.
- SPOF protection only applies to third-party scripts.
The API also provides a set of accompanying insights about how scripts covered by existing policies execute.
This API is a companion to the Script Management application on Akamai Control Center. This application includes metrics and analysis that show you which scripts on your site are causing large set impacts to its performance. You should review the information in the Script Management dashboard before creating any Script Management policies.
The Script Management application also includes testing suggestions to help you find the most popular pages that your policies affect, so you can confirm that Script Management is working as intended.
Script Management requires Akamai's mPulse application as its source for metrics about script performance on your site. You'll need to set up support for mPulse to use Script Management.
The bulk of Script Management's functionality is only available through the application on Control Center. You can create new policies and view insight data with the API. However, its most common use case is to retrieve a policy created for one hostname and then use the Property Manager API (PAPI) to apply it to many other hostnames on your property.
See the API's various operations for details on their request parameters and response data:
