Implementation Notes

  • The first API call gets the access group associated with the account.
  • With the access group, the services associated with the access group is obtained, specifically, the CACHING service in order to obtain usage and bandwidth.
  • With the services, the summary info for the month is obtained. That returns the usage and bandwidth metrics.

Reconciliation Steps

How to reconcile Edgecast Usage reporting with Fusion OM Data Feeds

  • In the Level3 portal, select Reports -> CDN Usage Reports
  • Review the caching statistics column which shows bandwidth and usage
  • In Fusion, create the Level3 recipe, then view the log output under the gear icon on the right. Fusion should match Level3 reporting.

Setup in Fusion

You can access Fusion Data Feeds from the left navigation pane, under Openmix. For initial steps please refer to the Fusion Integration Documentation.

When you get to the service-specific configuration dialog box, enter the following:

  • Name: The name given to the data feed. This will default to “Service - Platform Name” if not specified.
  • Run Every: The frequency with which the data feed is updated from the service.
  • Platform: The Platform that is associated with the data feed.
  • API Key ID: In the Level3 portal, this is under Portal Admin -> API Keys
  • API Secret Key: In the Level3 portal, go to Portal Admin -> API Keys -> Key Summary.

Once the installation is complete, it will be listed on the Fusion data feeds home page with a green status and monitoring metrics in the log history.

To edit a Fusion data feed click on the data feed in the list and then click the Edit button. Once you have changed the configuration, click Save. This will bring you back to the data feed list with your changes saved and applied to the data feed.
