Communication with Akamai's REST API

Akamai API for Node.js

node-akamai allows for easy communication with Akamai's REST CCU API to purge/invalidate cached objects.

npm install akamai
var akamai = require('akamai');
akamai.purge('', '...', [
], {domain: 'staging', action: 'invalidate'}).then(function (response) {
}).catch(function (err) {
// === 
akamai.invalidate.staging.url('', '...', [
]).then(function (response) {
}).catch(function (err) {

See more examples:

Create a purge request. Returns a promise.

Username of account with access to API.

Password for that account.

Array of strings representing the full urls/cpcodes of the content you wish to be purged. Depending on the options.type value, this array can represent cpcode names to be purged/invalidated.

  • type Of urls. They can be urls or cpcodes.
    • arl [Default]
    • cpcode
  • domain The network to target your request.
    • production [Default]
    • staging
  • action
    • remove [Default]
    • invalidate

In the result of the request's promise, the response will contain a .status function that is pre-configured to execute a AkamaiStatus request with the purge request's progressUri.

This library offers a more readable way to set the options for a API request. See constants.js. At the root level of this library only the following modifiers are available:

  • remove
  • invalidate
  • purge

All modifier functions only take username, password, and objects as arguments.

Make a request to check the length of the queue. Returns a promise.

Make a request to check status of a given progressUri. Returns a promise.

Note, that if you are using this within a purge request, you will be able to execute response.status() to retrieve a request's status in Akamai's queue.

  • [b75b6f0] update travis node versions
  • Exposed AkamaiStatus as .status at the module level. Thanks @alex-alexandrescu
  • Updated documentation to better explain the usage of AkamaiStatus in the response of a purge.

Please use GitHub's issue tracker.
