Installing the API Server

The API Server hosts the API that you have defined in the API Designer. Angular web applications can also be delivered over the API Server.

To make full use of the API Designer, you must first install the API Server. You can install the API Server with help from the Web Installer or the ImxClient command line program (the install-apiserver command). Read through the following sections for instructions on how to install the API Server on a Windows Server using the Web Installer and set it up with the default configuration. For more information about installing using the ImxClient command line program, see the One Identity Manager API Development Guide.
