Purge content by cache tag
This section describes how to purge content by cache tag.
Before you begin
To optimize the use of cache tags for your organization, see Best practices.
If you’re leveraging Drupal for your content management system needs, consider the Akamai Drupal 8 module to tag content.
- Under Purge content by, select Cache Tags.
In the entry field, type at least one
valid cache tag and press Enter or Tab.
Note: Cache tags are case-sensitive, for example, "tag-abc" and "Tag-Abc" are treated as distinct tag values. To remove a tag, click the X. If you enter a duplicate tag, it will automatically be removed from the entry field.
- When you are done entering tags, select the Akamai network on which you want to refresh content (Production or Staging).
- Select the method (Invalidate or Delete).
