The Limelight Configuration API (Application Programming Interface) lets developers securely control Limelight content delivery services from other applications. The API offers a range of calls with flexible syntax for controlling content, services, and administration functionality.
Many businesses have established workflows and tools for managing their content and online delivery. They also seek to enhance and expand their offerings using services from Limelight, and need ways to configure and manage Limelight services. While the Limelight Control selfservice web portal is available, some situations require API access.
The Limelight Configuration API lets customers programmatically manage content delivery services and service instances. The functionality is compatible with Limelight Control, allowing customers to create configurations in one tool and manage them in another. Authorized users can create, update, retrieve and delete content delivery services. To accelerate the learning curve, Limelight’s API Explorer lets developers run tests against live endpoints, see requests and responses, modify them to achieve desired results and copy functionally equivalent code snippets.
Consistent, flexible workflow—Maintain workflow by integrating Limelight content delivery via API and the Control web portal as needed.
Fast integration—Accelerate development by using API Explorer to work in a live test environment before going into production.
Easier onboarding—Configurations can be easily created based on use case and then managed programmatically.
