The Invoicing API

This API allows you to access your Akamai invoices.

Who Should Use This API

Use this API if you administer an Akamai-accelerated website, and want to develop your own tools to track invoice files and keep others in your organization updated about their status. Use it also to compare your invoices with your monthly usage.

Getting Started

Before using the Beta API for the first time:

  • Review the OPEN API Introduction on tools that Akamai provides.

  • Review OPEN API Provisioning to create your OPEN API access credentials and authorizations. As detailed in API Identity Model, you then access the API using custom hostnames that looks like this:

  • If you want to use this API to compare your final bill with your usage data, you need a separate token to provision the Billing Center API.

  • Some API operations require contractId and productId identifiers. They are both available programmatically from the Contracts API. The Invoicing API allows access to any contract for which you have permission to view invoicing data.

  • Some API operations require an account identifier. If it’s not already available, you can access it with the Property Manager API from listing contracts as described above. Select the top-level accountId member and remove the act_ prefix.

  • If you need help with the API, provide feedback with the {OPEN} developer community, or else contact Technical Support for help interpreting your invoice data.
