Configure Conditional Origins
Since this Cloudlet can forward a request to a different origin, you'll want to set up Conditional Origins. Conditional Origins let you forward a request to a different origin.
An origin is a source of traffic sent from your network to the Akamai portal. An origin may be a hostname, a data center, or a piece of networking equipment, like a server or a load balancer.
In Property Manager, you use these rule templates to set up Conditional Origins:
|Property Manager rule template||Description|
|Conditional Origin Group||Enables
the Conditional Origin feature and provides a container for all the Conditional
Origins you want to configure for the property.
It must be the last child rule of the property’s default rule.
|Conditional Origin Definition||Contains
the configuration information for a specific Conditional Origin. By default, it
includes an Origin Server behavior and a Content Provider behavior. It must be a child
rule of the Conditional Origin Group rule.
You can also add other behaviors to this rule. Any behavior you add to this rule only executes if a Cloudlet selects this Conditional Origin.
