Revoke keys

You can revoke one or multiple keys inside a key collection. When you revoke keys, you do not delete them permanently because you can restore them within the next 120 days. After this period, the system removes the keys irreversibly. API consumers that identify with revoked keys cannot access the resources and endpoints listed in the Access control list tab of a particular collection.

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