Installing the ESI Module

The HUMAN Onboarding team will install the HUMAN Akamai ESI Enforcer on your Akamai property.

Once the installation is complete, a new property version will be created in your Akamai Property Manager Editor. This version includes all the configuration settings that exist in the latest property version and the new rules and variables added by HUMAN. Once installed, you will be able to review the changes and activate the new version.

As part of the Akamai ESI Enforcer installation process, Property Variables and Property Configuration settings are added to your Property Manager and the ESI files are added to your NetStorage.

  • All the ESI files being added start with a px prefix and are located by default in the /px_enforcer directory.
  • All property variables being added start with a PX_ prefix. See the Configuration section for more details.
  • All property configuration settings being added are found under the rule named PxEnforcer.

Akamai NetStorage Files

The ESI and HTML files required for the enforcer will be uploaded to the/px_enforcer directory in your NetStorage account.
