The Limelight Configuration API (Application Programming Interface) suite lets developers securely control Limelight services from other applications. The APIs offer 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 self-service web portal is available, some situations require API access.
The Limelight Configuration API suite lets customers programmatically manage content delivery services and service instances. The functionality is comparable to the configuration capabilities available in Limelight Control. Authorized users can create, update, retrieve and delete content delivery services.

Allow for programmatic configuration of Deliver, Performance, and Chunked Streaming services, at a functional level that is roughly equivalent to what can be accomplished via the Limelight Control web-based portal.
Configurations can be easily created based on use case and then managed programmatically.
