sub_​customer


When positioned in a property's top-level default rule, enables various Cloud Embed features that allow you to leverage Akamai's CDN architecture for your own subcustomers. This behavior's options allow you to use Cloud Embed to configure your subcustomers' content. Once enabled, you can use the Akamai Cloud Embed API (ACE) to assign subcustomers to this base configuration, and to customize policies for them. See also the dynamic_​web_​content behavior to configure subcustomers' dynamic web content.
