Known limitations with MMC
Mixed Mode Configuration (MMC) lets you reuse the various use case-based behaviors for Download Delivery (DD) to implement several different scenarios. There are some limitations, though.
|You can only include the Origin Characteristics behavior if Origin Server is also in the rule.||Since the Default Rule applies to all requests, settings in its instance of the Origin Characteristics behavior must be used. You can't have a unique instance of this behavior in a subsequent rule to apply settings for unique requests. Origin Characteristics must apply to the same Origin Server called out in a rule.|
|Signature Header Authentication is not supported in a rule when NetStorage is set as the Origin Type in the Default Rule.||If you have NetStorage set as your Origin Type in the Default Rule and a custom origin ("Your Origin") set in a subsequent rule, NetStorage authentication header information may be leaked to the custom origin. To avoid this issue, we have disabled the use of Signature Header Auth in rules.|
|MMC will not optimize delivery of files that are delivered using another product.||For example MMC does not optimize delivery of non-segmented media files in your DD configuration.|
|MMC is not supported with DD through Akamai Cloud Embed (ACE).||N/A|
