CDN

The VIS supports integration with various CDN providers, which are stored as a ‘CDN object’ in the system.


CDN Object

{
    "Id": "2106d0d5-e0c1-4287-a51c-db14f46092a3",
    "ConfigurationJson": "{...}",
    "Name": "live.origin.vualto.com"
}

Configuration Json

Schemas:

A version 2 schema now exists and should be structured as follows:

{
  "type": "CLOUD_FRONT",
  "version": 2,
  "defaultInvalidation": "",
  "cdnSpecific": {}
}

cdnSpecific varies per CDN Type, and contains the identifying information for the CDN Provider.

defaultInvalidation is an optional default value, previously specified as path within the details object, this provides backwards compatibility but it is advised that you always provide an AltPath value when clearing cache instead (see below).

Type: LEASE_WEB

CDN Specific:

{
  "host": "lw-api-host",
  "customerNumber": "lw-customer-number",
  "zoneId": "lw-zone-id-here",
  "secretKey": "lw-secret-key"
}

Type: CLOUD_FRONT

CDN Specific:

{
  "distributionId": "aws-distribution-id",
  "accessKey": "aws-access-key",
  "secretKey": "aws-secret-key",
  "region": "aws-region-name"
}

Type: LEVEL_3

CDN Specific:

{
  "host": "level3-api-host",
  "notificationEmailAddresses": "email@vualto.com",
  "level3Key": "level3-key",
  "level3Secret": "level3-secret",
  "level3AccessGroup": "level3-access-group"
}

Type: EBU

CDN Specific:

{
  "username": "ebu-api-username",
  "password": "ebu-api-password",
  "customerId": "ebu-customerId",
  "distributionId": "ebu-distributionId",
  "distributionType": "ebu-distributionType",
  "policyId": "ebu-policyId"
}

policyId is optional, but providing it skips a lookup request to find this value.


Restriction Information

Restriction information is displayed and submitted using the following structures:

RestrictionMethod:

  • IpAddress = 0
  • Iso3166 = 1

Iso3166 is the only fully supported value at this time.

RestrictionType:

  • None = 0
  • Allowed = 1
  • Denied = 2

RestrictionInfo Object:

{
  "method": 0,
  "type": 0,
  "items": [ "entry1", "entry2" ]
}

method is the RestrictionMethod

type is the RestrictionType
