Install API Portal

This section describes how to install API Portal:

For better performance and scalability, you can configure API Portal to cache APIs in a Redis cache. It is recommended to use the Redis cache if you plan to expose hundreds of APIs, or you plan to connect API Portal to more than one API Manager. API Portal continues to work even without Redis cache.

On software installation, you can install Redis dependencies before installing API Portal. If you plan to API Portal in Docker containers, you can deploy a Redis image into another container.

Note   Redis cache is not available on the virtual appliance installation.

After installing, you must configure the following:

Note   Because API Portal is layered on API Manager, you must have both API Manager and API Gateway v7.5.3 or later installed and functional before you can configure and use API Portal.
