API-Based Implementation Guide
We're Moving ... Again
Yes, the Identity Cloud documentation is once more on the move. And this time we're headed to two different locations:
- The REST API documentation is moving to here: https://developer.akamai.com/api/
- And the remainder of the documentation is moving to here: https://learn.akamai.com/en-us/webhelp/identity-cloud/technical-library/GUID-76D7D02B-8C6F-4188-AF17-0711F9620B38.html
As for the Education Center, well, the Center itself will disappear on July 23rd. We apologize for any inconvenience, but we look forward to becoming a full-fledged member of the Akamai family.
