Akamai API Gateway

API Gateway Best Practices

Akamai's API Gateway has tons of capabilities. We've put some best practice recommendations together to help you get the most out of our features. Note that some of our recommendations will overlap with the features that are managed by it.


What will we cover?

Our best practices section will go over the following:

  • Caching

  • GraphQL Caching

  • CORS

  • Compression

  • Error Response Customization

  • Privacy SettingĀ 

  • Quota Management

  • JSON Web Token

Any feature in the list has to be managed by API Gateway since it will override anything set up within the Property Manager. All other recommendations mentioned are still applicable and should be taken into consideration.
