Move keys

You can move one or multiple keys to a collection that already exists in API Keys and Traffic Management, or you can create a new collection and make it the destination for your keys. This option is particularly useful for preserving keys stored in a collection that you intend to delete.

API: You can also complete this task by using the API Keys and Traffic Management API. Run the Move keys operation. Learn more about Akamai’s APIs.
