Providing API Documentation

In order to transfer data from the Identity Cloud to a third-party data store (be it Salesforce, Oracle, Microsoft Dynamics, etc.) Akamai requires detailed information about the target API. Because of that, you must supply:

  • Full documentation for the target API, including examples of both API requests and API responses.
  • A test environment for the target API. You must also provide test data representative of the production environment (in other words, "fake" user accounts that contain attributes and attribute values similar to those found in actual user profiles).
  • A way to verify that ProfileSync calls are successfully processed in the test environment, and that profile data is successfully transferred. This is often done by providing read-only API access to the test database.
