When you deploy web assets to the Akamai network, you create rules that tell our edge servers how to process requests for your content. Akamai is always seeking ways to make managing complex configurations seamless and quick. With the Property Manager extension, you can edit and validate Property Manager API (PAPI) JSON rule trees right from the IDE. Once you've updated and validated the configuration file, push it back to the platform with PAPI or Akamai command-line interface (CLI).
We hope this innovation provides a developer-friendly experience that enables great gains in efficiency. Our development plans include further improvements within VS Code and Eclipse so that you can manage more and more Property Manager workflows directly from the plug-in.
