Editing 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 edit 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. From the Configuration list, select the configuration you want to edit.

    Media portal shows the details for the configuration you selected.
  1. Click Edit Configuration.
  1. Make your changes to the configuration.

  1. When you're done, click Save. (You can also save a copy of the configuration by clicking Save As.)

    Media portal saves your changes:

    • If you saved the configuration with the same name, Media portal adds a new version of the configuration.

    • If you saved the configuration with a different name, Media portal creates that configuration and sets the version number to 1.

  2. If you're ready to push your changes to an environment, promote the configuration.
