About Conditional Origins
If you're using a Cloudlet that forwards a request to a different origin, you'll likely need to set up Conditional Origins.
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.
Conditional Origins let you forward a Cloudlets request to a different origin.
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.
