Using Properties to Configure the Edge permalink

A "property" is a configuration of one or more hostnames (domains) that need to be deployed to the CDN Pro edge servers. A property determines how you want the servers to obtain, cache, modify, and distribute your content to end users. The key elements of a property include:

  • Service hostname(s) to be accelerated
  • One or more origin servers
  • Caching rules for different types of contents
  • Modifications to the URL or HTTP header fields
  • Whether HTTPS is required, TLS certificates, and TLS protocol version

Managing Properties permalink

On the CDN Pro platform, each property is versioned to track the history of changes and allow rollback if needed. Each version can be deployed independently to the staging or production environment.

Using the Properties page, you can create, modify, validate, and deploy properties. You can also undeploy and delete properties if needed. To display the Properties page, click Edge Configurations in the left pane, and then select Properties. The following figure shows the key elements on the page, and the table following the figure describes them.
