Why do I need to do this if I'm integrating CrowdHandler in Akamai?
If the functionality isn't mission critical can I skip this step?
The former is a requirement for our autotune feature to work correctly in addition to providing visibility into how your application is performing under load.
The latter synchronises session information between the clientside and CrowdHandler's backend preventing recently active user's that have spent longer than the configured CrowdHandler session time from being sent to CrowdHandler's session validator for revalidation needlessly.
We recommend reaching out to our support team via our support form. A CrowdHandler integration specialist will be able to talk through your specific use case and advise.
I've done all of the steps. What Now?
You've completed the integration setup. Great job! Check out the "What Next?" section of the Akamai Getting Started Guide for guidance on how to proceed.
