Akamai Error Reference Translator

Instead of use the Akamai console, I wrote a script to translate the error code into human readable language. It can be downloaded from here

To run the script, you need to get the API token, secret … from your Akamai admin first. It is under Configure/ Manage API in the console.

How it looks like?

./akamai_error_translator.py 18.2d464868.1442817339.b692352
