Configuring OE Web Servers : Managing OE Web Servers : Creating an OE Web Server instance

Creating an OE Web Server instance

You can create new OE Web Server instances from the Resources tab.
Note: Make sure that the REST Management Agent is deployed before you create the OE Web Server instance. You must copy the oerm.war file to the deployment server.
To create a new OE Web Server instance:
1. From the management console bar, click the Resources tab's dropdown arrow. Choose New OpenEdge Resource > OE Web Server. The New OE Web Servername page appears.
2. Type the name of the new OE Web Server in the New OE Web Servername field.
Note: The OE Web Server name is case sensitive and can include any character except a period (.) or square brackets ([ ]). The name must be unique among all configured OE Web Server names.
3. Type the URL in the URLfield. You can now configure the properties of the new instance. Initially, the instance is enabled only for administration, allowing you to modify its properties and deploy REST services to it without allowing premature user access to an incomplete configuration. Form the root URL according to the following format:
*hostmachine — The name of the machine where the OEM is installed (Default: localhost).
*port — The HTTP port number on the machine (Default: 8089).
4. Under Deploy OE Web Server section, you can choose to deploy the OE Web Server instance on the Tomcat Manager (Apache Tomcat installed along with the Progress Developer Studio for OpenEdge).
Note: Ensure that you have Tomcat Manager API enabled and a Tomcat user setup to enable this functionality.
*Deploy OE Web Server — Select this check box to deploy the OE Web Server instance. Selecting this option requires you to enter the Tomcat Manager Details fields: Username, Password, and URL.
*username — A username required to access the Tomcat Server.
*password — The password for the specified username.
*URL — The URL where you have the Tomcat Server installed. For example, if you are using the default ports in the Tomcat server, you can enter the URL as http://localhost:8980/manager/text/deploy.
Note: You can choose to create an OE Web Server instance without deploying the OE Web Server.
5. Click Save. The new OE Web Server instance appears under the OE Web Server folder.
