Adding a property to a configuration

Get help opening a configuration

  1. From an open configuration, click Edit Configuration.
  1. In the Properties section, click Add Property.
  1. Fill in the information for the origin:

    1. Type the origin host name.

    2. From the Cache Fill Protocol list, select which protocol to use when contacting the origin.

    3. In the Cache Fill Port field, type which port the origin server is listening on (e.g., 80 for HTTP and 443 for HTTPS).

    4. If you need to specify a webroot other than /, type it in the Alternate Web root field.

    5. If you need to override the host header for routing purposes, type it in the Origin DNS field. (You can use a fully qualified domain name or an IPv4/v6 address.)

  2. Add any aliases you want the CenturyLink CDN to serve in addition to the host name:

    1. In the Alias field, type the fully qualified domain name.

    2. To add another alias, click Add Row and repeat the previous step.

  3. If you need to add property-based settings, select a definition type from the list.

    Media portal adds a section for that type of definition.

  4. For each definition type you selected, use the list to select a definition you want to add as a property-based setting.

  5. From the Traffic Type list, select the type of traffic served by the origin:

    • Live: used for live/linear HTTP Adaptive Streaming services. 24x7 or events

    • Patch: used for large objects such as software updates, games etc.

    • VOD: used for video-on-demand content served using HTTP Adaptive Streaming technologies

    • Wholesite: used for enterprise website delivery

  6. When you're finished adding the property, click Done.
  1. If you need to edit or add other definitions or properties, continue editing the configuration without saving. (Saving the configuration creates a new version.) When you're done editing the configuration, continue with step 9.

  2. Click Save (above the Service-Wide Definition section). You can also click Save As to save the configuration under a new name.
  1. If needed, add any notes to describe the changes you made.

  2. Click Save again.

    Media portal saves the configuration.
