Install the Package and Deploy tools

You can use the API Gateway Package and Deploy tools to automate processes in your API Gateway system for continuous integration. For example, this includes generating API Gateway configuration packages from API team development projects, and building and deploying configurations to API Gateway group instances.

You can install the Package and Deploy tools component on both UNIX/Linux and Windows without an API Gateway license.

Note   Windows is supported only for a limited set of developer tools, see Install developer tools on Windows. API Gateway and API Manager do not support Windows.
