To refresh specific cached objects or remove all objects by URLs, content provider CP codes, cache tags, and cache keys across the Akamai edge network, the appropriate permissions are required.
Default user roles
|Purge by||User default role|
|Cache tag||Admin only|
|CP code||Admin and Publisher|
|URL||Admin and Publisher|
|Cache key||Admin and Publisher|
|Directory and file extension||Admin and Publisher|
By default, the Publisher role has permission to purge content by CP code, URL, Cache Key, directory and file extension.
Administrator (Admin) role
By default, the Admin role has permission to purge content by cache tag, CP code, URL, ARL, directory and file extension. The Admin is the only role that can purge content by cache tag. Other default roles (including Publisher) cannot purge by cache tag unless authorized by the Admin.
Alternatively, Admins can enable purging by cache tag and CP code for API clients.
