Submitting Requests

This section describes how to submit refresh requests using Fast Purge.

How to

  1. Go to Control Center (https://control.akamai.com/) and log in.
  2. From the Control Center menu, choose Purge Cache in the CDN section.
  3. Select the purge method and specify the objects to purge:
    • URLs - Enter a list of URLs you want to remove, OR click file upload and browse for a file containing the list of URLs you want to remove.
    • CP codes - Select the CP codes for which you want to purge all associated content.
    • Cache tags - Enter the tags that are associated with the content you want to purge.
    • Cache keys/ARLs - Enter a list of ARLs you want to purge, OR click File Upload and browse for a file containing the list of ARLs you want to purge.

      Note that URLs must be full, not relative, and must include the protocol, which can be http:// or https://. If an object is cached with both http and https, then you must purge both of them.

      For example:

      http://www.example.com/graphics/picture.gif is correct.

      graphics/pictures.gif is not correct.

  4. Select the network: Production or Staging.
  5. Indicate the refresh method: Purge or invalidate.
  6. Click Submit Purge.
