Installation & Upgrade

The following tasks must be completed before end users can view and interact with information in an Intergraph Smart environment. All of the tasks must be completed, but their order does not matter.

Deploy Smart APIs

After Smart API Manager is installed and configured, Smart APIs for Intergraph Process, Power & Marine applications can be deployed.

A Smart API is installed with its application and then configured with its own Configuration Utility. For instructions, please see the documentation provided with the application delivering the Smart API.

Develop custom Smart Clients

For information to assist you with developing, deploying, and registering your Smart Client, see the Smart API Developer Documentation section in the Smart API Manager web application help.

  2. Enter the username and password provided to you by a Smart API Manager administrator.

  3. Click Dev Docs on the left panel.
