Akamai CLI

Automate the creation, configuration, and activation of property configurations, purge your content from the Edge in five seconds or less, create your own custom commands, and use our package manager to make it easy to update and install new tools. The Akamai command-line interface (CLI) is a compelling toolkit that allows you to do all of these things. For those using DevOps, the CLI clarifies the integration of Akamai into your existing CI/CD automation.
