Activate or deactivate a stream in the DataStream application

You can control receiving log data by activating and deactivating your streams. For example, you may need to deactivate your stream when you’re implementing downstream changes, planning a roll-out, or witnessing an incident. You may also need to quickly activate a data stream that you published in an inactive state to start log deliveries.

Having all your data streams at hand, you can easily control the flow of data and don’t need to create property configuration versions to implement your changes. Changes you introduce in the DataStream application take about an hour to take effect across the Akamai platform.

How to

  1. Log in to Control Center using a User ID and Password that have been configured for access to DataStream.
  2. Go to > COMMON SERVICES > DataStream.
  3. On the DataStream page, find the data stream that you want to manage and click it in the Version column to turn it on or off.
    • indicates that the version is inactive on the production network.
    • indicates that the version is active on the production network.
    It may take up to 15 minutes for the changes to take effect on the Akamai platform.
    Note: By managing the stream’s activation status, you activate or deactivate collecting logs for all active properties associated with this stream.
