API request constraints


Modifies the action taken when an API request constraint triggers.

To use this operation, call the akamai_appsec_api_endpoints data source to list the names of your API endpoints, then apply a constraint (and an accompanying action) to one of those endpoints.

Scopes: API endpoint


terraform {
  required_providers {
    akamai = {
      source = "akamai/akamai"

provider "akamai" {
  edgerc = "~/.edgerc"

// USE CASE: User wants to set the API request constraints action.

data "akamai_appsec_configuration" "configuration" {
  name = "Documentation"

data "akamai_appsec_api_endpoints" "api_endpoint" {
  config_id          = data.akamai_appsec_configuration.configuration.config_id
  security_policy_id = "gms1_134637"
  api_name           = "Contracts"

resource "akamai_appsec_api_request_constraints" "api_request_constraints" {
  config_id          = data.akamai_appsec_configuration.configuration.config_id
  security_policy_id = "gms1_134637"
  api_endpoint_id    =
  action             = "alert"
