Vantage integrates with your Fastly account through a read-only API token. Fastly API tokens are free for you to create, and adding them to the Vantage console takes only a few minutes.

Connect Your Fastly Account


Create a free Vantage account, then follow the steps below to create a Fastly API token.

  1. Navigate and log in to the Fastly console.
  2. On the API tokens page, re-enter your password if prompted. Then, click + Create Token.
  3. Enter the following token details:
    • For Name, enter something relevant, like VantageReadOnlyToken.
    • For Type, select Automation token.
    • If the Role option is displayed, select Billing.
    • For Scope, select Read-only access (global:read) — Read account information configuration and stats. Ensure all other options remain unchecked. Vantage will never attempt to make changes to your Fastly infrastructure.
    • For Access, select All Services on YOUR_ORGANIZATION_NAME.
