API access to your Edgecast account may be used to purge assets, add origins, define CNAMEs and do almost everything that can be done via the dashboard. The up to date API reference is always on the Home tab of the management console.
To use the REST API, you must first turn it on for the relevant user.
Go to Admin --> Users, select a user to edit and turn on API access.
The endpoints to check depend on the actions the user is to perform via API, as listed in the API reference.
To get the API token, the user must log in and click "My Settings"
