Activate a Cloudlets policy version

Now that you have a Cloudlets policy that contains rules, you have to activate it on the Akamai network. Keep in mind you need to activate the policy to use it with a chosen property.

Note: Activation procedure has been significantly simplified for the new Shared Policy functionality, which means you activate the Shared Policy only once, and then it is available and fully usable for an unlimited number of properties. Until now, you had to activate a policy each time you wished to use it for another property. Also, if you activate any Shared Policy, there is an option to deactivate it.

How to

  1. Go to > CDN > Edge logic Cloudlets.
  2. Click the action cog for the policy you want to activate.
    Note: You can also activate from the Cloudlets Policies, Policy Details, and Version Details screens in Cloudlets Policy Manager.
  3. Select Activate Policy.
  4. Complete these fields:

    Before activating the policy in the production environment, it's a good practice to test it in staging.
