License keys

API Gateway requires the following license keys.

Axway license file

You must have a valid Axway license file to install the following API Gateway components:

  • API Gateway Server
  • API Gateway Analytics
  • API Manager

You can obtain an evaluation trial license to enable you to evaluate the API Gateway features. However, you must have a full license to enable all API Gateway features for use in a non-evaluation environment (for example, development, testing, or production). To obtain an evaluation trial license or a full license, contact your Axway Account Manager.

Note   You can install an Admin Node Manager in isolation without an API Gateway license. For more information, see Install the Admin Node Manager.

McAfee license file

You must have a valid McAfee license file to use the McAfee Anti-Virus filter.

FIPS-compliant mode license file

You must have a valid Axway FIPS-compliant mode license file to run API Gateway in FIPS-compliant mode.

Multiple installations

API Gateway requires a minimum of two installations for high availability (HA). Make sure that you obtain license keys for all of the API Gateway instances that you are installing.
