You need to register subcustomers
You must generate and register an ID for each subcustomer you wish to add to your base configuration. A subcustomer ID is a mandatory element in various ACE API calls.
Before you begin: You need subcustomer IDs
When registering a subcustomer, you need to provide a unique ID—a "subcustomer ID". As the cloud partner, it's up to you to determine a method to create these IDs and associate them with your subcustomers.
Each subcustomer in your billing system who uses your Akamai Cloud Embed implementation needs an ID. All traffic for a particular subcustomer is rolled up by this ID for billing.
subcustomer IDs have the following requirements and limitations:
- Each subcustomer must have a unique ID.
- The ID cannot be more than 50 characters.
- The ID can only consist of alphanumeric characters (a-z, A-Z, 0-9), dashes (" - ") or periods (" . ")
You should define subcustomer scope carefully, because it helps a great deal with billing and reporting.

propertyId: This is a unique ID value that is generated and associated with a base configuration. Contact your Account Representative for this value.
sub-customerId: The ID you created for the subcustomer you wish to register with the named base configuration (
