First Party Configuration

In First Party Mode, the PerimeterX Akamai ESI Enforcer acts as a reverse proxy for client requests and sensor activity.

As an Edge Enforcer, the Akamai ESI Enforcer is configured with First-Party enabled by default. In case of failover, the Javascript Snippet sends requests directly to the PerimeterX servers in Third-Party Mode.

To confirm that you have configured your PerimeterX Akamai ESI Enforcer in First-Party mode,

  1. Login to Akamai Property Manager
  2. Make sure that the PX_FIRSTPARTYENABLED property variable is set to true
  3. After configuring the Enforcer to handle First-Party requests, complete the steps in the Integrate 1st-Party JS Snippet section to make sure your snippet is setup to serve the Javascript Sensor via First-Party.
