Akamai CLI: Enterprise Application Access

Table of contents



Enterprise Application Access (EAA) comes with a full suite of APIs. To interact with the service, you can:

  • write your own scripts
  • use Postman
  • use Terraform EAA
  • ... or use Akamai CLI to run common operations directly from the command line, no coding required.

This can be helpful if you plan to consume EAA logs into your favorite SIEM or automate your workflow with Bash, Powershell, a deployment solution like Ansible, or a CI/CD pipeline.

Key features

  • Event logs
    • View access logs (identification, application activity)
    • View admin logs (admin portal access, config change, deployment, deletion)
    • Send the logs to a file
    • Blocking mode (similar to tail -f) Alternatively, you can specify a date range with --start and --end
  • Application
    • Save, restore/update, deploy
    • Batch operation
    • Attach/detach connectors
  • Directory
    • Create groups and group overlays
    • Synchronize with your LDAP or Active Directory
  • Identity Providers (IdP)
    • List configured IdPs and their status
  • Certificate management
    • List configured certificates
    • Rotate certificate with optional deployment of dependent applications and IdP
  • Connectors
    • List all connectors including the reachability status and health
    • Show all applications used by a connector and a breakdown of active connection
    • Swap a connector (for applications only)

Known Limitations

While updating an application from a JSON, only a subset of the data will be updated in the back-end, not the entire application configuration.

Troubleshooting and Support


If the command is not working properly, you can increase the level of verbosity using:

  • -v or --verbose to trace the main steps
  • -d or --debug to get full visibility, include API HTTP headers

The messages are printed on stderr so you can safely redirect stdout to a file or use the --output option.
