The following procedure for configuring your Smart API server to your site and authenticate your user credentials requires that you edit certain values in the Web.config file using a text editor such as Notepad++.

You should make a copy of the Web.config file before making changes.

Navigate to where you installed Smart Instrumentation Smart API, by default C:/Program Files (x86)/SmartPlant/Instrumentation/Web Services/SI WEB API <version number>.

  1. Locate the Web.config file and open it in a text editor of your choice.

  2. In the open text document, locate fields separated by %_%, for example %BaseURL% and replace the string (including the %%) with your data. The table below, shows the list of variables and required replacement values.

Test your Server Connection

  1. On the machine where you installed the API server, open a browser window, for example Internet Explorer.

  2. In the address line, type the following: https://Your Base URL/api/si/<version number>/Description. The result is a payload with the API description.

If no payload is returned with the API description, check all your settings are correct and try again.

Register a Smart API in Smart API Manager

You should now register your API with the SAM Issuer and then edit the Web.config file by copying the SAM_Resource_Identifier and the SAM_Secret from your SAM settings to the fields in the Web.config file where you inserted the temporary identifiers and secrets.
