Before you begin

To use API Gateway, you must have a Control Center account with a digital property configured for your product. You also need some information about APIs that you want to deploy over the Akamai network.

To set up API Gateway, you need the following information:

  • Your valid Akamai account name and ID
  • An administrator login for Control Center
  • The name of the API that you want to publish
  • Your API hostnames
  • Optional: An OpenAPI (Swagger) or RAML file that contains your API definition
    Note: The supported API definition file versions are Swagger 2.0, Swagger 3.0, and RAML 0.8.
