  1. [CDN] Simplify CDN authentication for interacting with its REST API

    Unless I'm missing something, right now to work with a CDN API one needs to go through AD and setup users/rules for every CDN endpoint you may have for all your sites. Then on CMS side for each site + CDN first authenticate yourself, then get a token to interact with the API. Once all that is done, each site must also know the subscriptionID, resourceGroup, profileName, endpointName just to access the CDN's API.

    The actual endpoints for working with the CDN is great, it's just authenticating and ensuring you're interacting with the correct CDN that is very involved. So…

        • Enabling Https on Verizon CDN with custom domain takes forever

          It took close to 72 hours to auto verify and provision a https endpoint for a custom domain that was already CNAMEd to the cdn.

          The steps need better messaging, i was initially unsure as to whether it even found the CNAME. Eventually it moved on, 3 days later. i finally had my Https endpoint.

          • cmdlet / API for updating 'Custom caching rules'

            It looks like the only way to update caching rules is via the WebUI, it would be nice if there was a programmatic way of updating custom caching rules, you know devops and all that. cmdlets / api / **** even ARM options

                  • Test Azure CDN Rule Engine before sending for approval

                    At this moment, you cann't test Azure CDN Rule Engine before sending for approval, approval of new Rules takes up to 4 hours. Which make things very difficult.

                      Rule approval is currently automatic with no delay. We will follow up on having the 4 hour approval message you see in the CDN supplemental portal updated to remove this confusion. While approval is automatic it can currently take 90 minutes for updates to propagate to all CDN POPs. Work is under way to significantly reduce this to a much lower value in the next few months.

                    • Purging via CNAME

                      Currently purging is just supported by specifying the CDN endpoint. For case where a rewrite rules is used to direct customers to different content based on the CNAME (e.g. by selecting content to return based on host name) it is valuable to have the ability to purge content based on CNAME. Without this capability one needs to create individual CDN endpoints to use for each CNAME that has different content returned based on the CNAME.

                        • Add Azure Service Fabric Reverse Proxy Port to AKAMAI CDN Allowed Origin Ports

                          The Azure Service Fabric Reverse Proxy allows services running in the cluster to be reached from outside the cluster via HTTP(s). The default port for the reverse proxy is 19081.

                          Azure CDN (with AKAMAI) allowed origin port list currently does not include that port.

                          AKAMAI CDN should include the default reverse proxy port for Azure Service Fabric in the allowed origin port list so that integration can happen right out of the box.

                          • Support HSTS and HPKP

                            Allow HSTS and HPKP to be enabled on Azure CDN

                            Currently these values can only be passed through from the origin, which is fine for HSTS but can cause issues for HPKP (as the CDN cert may change, and probably doesn't match the origin cert)

                              How do you want HSTS to be enabled on the CDN? HSTS can be enabled on Azure CDN from Verizon Premium by using the rules engine to add the “Strict-Transports-Security” response header. Support for HPKP would likely require customers to provide their own HTTPS certificates. Once support for providing your own certificates is available the rules engine could be used to enabled HPKP support.

                            • Dashboard with CDN Information

                              1. The current CDN portal provides the required information, but it would be good to have something in the form of an Dashboard, which can provide an complete view of the performance and utilization.

                              2. Region/Country wise cache status and the hit and miss ration is good to have to understand the traffic and to be aware of the performance from the different regions.

                                API is needed to add new rules (e.g. Country Filtering, Token Auth, etc.) for newly added content.

                                Use case: User adds new video content in CMS where he is able to block this video in some regions.

                                      • Make full purge and wildcard purge for AKAMAI CDN

                                        There is no way I can purge AKAMAI CDN endpoint fully or with wildcard which is best fit for our project.

                                        • Akamai CDN Easly Expire Header Set and Purge ALL Available?

                                          Hello,

                                          I'm using Akamai General Web Delivery. Its seems fine but Purge all and on the images files specific have not able the set Leverage Browser Caching (expire headers). Its maybe easly be on the Azure control panel.
