The base configuration vs. the delivery policy

In your ACE instance there are two separate "configurations" that need to be generated. Before you get started, you should know the difference between the two.

The base configuration

In the simplest of terms, this configuration defines which subcustomers can access your ACE CDN, and what those subcustomers can and can't do. (All subcustomers associated with a base configuration are subject to its rules and behaviors.) You use our Property Manager application (either in Control Center or via its API) to define these settings.

The delivery policy

This is a configuration that you generate for each specific subcustomer. Using the ACE API, you set up a delivery policy to include subcustomer-specifc rules to supplement the rules defined in the base configuration.
