After installing Smart Electrical Smart API, you need to configure it before you can start using it to send requests. Most of the required configuration is done using the Intergraph Smart® Configuration Utility, which includes the modules required for your application. There are also optional configurations such as setting automatic deletion of temporary files and generating common metadata for item properties.
To send Smart API requests, your user credentials must be authenticated; therefore Smart Electrical Smart API will need to be registered with an authentication server such as:
Hexagon's Intergraph Smart API Manager (SAM) (recommended). For details, see Configure and register your Smart API on SAM.
To register, you must be an Admin user with configuration permissions for the authentication server.
Here is a three-minute video that shows how to configure Smart Electrical Smart API to work with your site and to obtain a valid authentication token for sending requests (the example shown is for Intergraph Smart® P&ID Smart API).
