Adding a configuration

A configuration tells the CenturyLink CDN (content delivery network) what to do when it receives requests for your content. Once you have a configuration ready, you deploy it (promote it) to either your staging or production enviroment. Media portal also lets you track the history for a configuration and for the environments.

To add a configuration:

  1. Log in to Media portal.
  1. From the menu, select My Services > Caching.
  1. From the lists, select the access group and SCID (service component ID) you want to work with.
  1. Click Add Configuration.
  1. In the Configuration Name field, type a name for the configuration.

  2. A configuration always requires properties, but doesn't need definitions unless you plan to use match rules. Do one of the following:

    • If you only need to add properties to this configuration, skip to step 9.

    • If you need to add definitions to use later with match rules, continue with step 7.
  1. To add a service-wide definition to the configuration, select the type of definition you want to add, fill in the details for the definition, then click Add Definition. Use the sections below to help fill in the fields for each definition.

Adding a geo-region definition

Adding an IP-group definition

Adding a token-authentication definition

Adding a log-endpoint definition

Adding a request-header definition

Adding a response-header definition

Adding a DCT (dynamic content transformation) definition

Adding an accept-encoding definition

      8.  Repeat step 7 as needed to continue adding definitions.

      9.  To add properties to the configuration, click Add Property, fill in the details for the
             property, then click Done.

    10.  When you're done building the configuration, click Save.

            Media portal saves the configuration and assigns a version of 1 to it. If you're ready to
            push the configuration to an environment, you can promote it.
