EdgeWorkers CLI

The EdgeWorkers command line interface (CLI) expedites the process of registering, uploading, activating and testing EdgeWorkers functions on the Akamai Edge network.

Technical Setup Requirements

To use this tool you need:

  • Akamai CLI installed. If you have a Mac with brew installed, run this command: brew install akamai.
  • An API client that contains the EdgeWorkers APIs with read-write access. Follow the steps in Get Started with APIs to learn how to configure credentials to access the API.
  • Node version 7+

Installing EdgeWorkers CLI

Use the following Akamai CLI command to install the latest EdgeWorkers CLI package:

akamai install edgeworkers ___

Option Description
-h, –help output usage information
Argument Existence Description
edgeworker-identifier required A unique integer handle to an EdgeWorkers instance
version-identifier optional A unique integer handle to version of an EdgeWorkers instance

Key Details

  1. Result set is sorted by an upload sequence value that is not displayed (an internal incremented integer).

  2. EdgeWorker versions are customer defined strings.

Upload New EdgeWorker Version

Creates a new version of a given EdgeWorker Id which includes the code bundle.
