Configuring the OMAG Server Platform
The OMAG Server Platform is a JVM process that includes a tomcat web server and uses Spring Boot to support REST APIs.
The platform supports no specific security authorization.
All configuration is stored in encrypted files - one for each OMAG Server configured to run on it.
These defaults are suitable for a development environment. However for production, the platform should be configured with platform security because this ensures configuration is managed by authorized users.
Figure 1 shows the points of configuration for the OMAG Server Platform.
Figure 1: What needs to be configured in the server platform
The choices are:
Configuring the Configuration Connector - to change the storage location and format of OMAG Server configuration documents.
Configuring the Platform Security Connector - to change who is allowed to call the platform services.
Since the OMAG Server Platform is a Spring Boot application, there are other values that can be set in its application.properties file found in the resources subdirectory.
Defining the port that the OMAG Server Platform will listen on for REST API calls.
Controlling the level of developer logging that the platform produces when it is running. See Configuring logging options for more details.
Defining where the connector implementations should be loaded from.
Follow this link for more information on standard properties. In addition, Egeria adds support for additional application properties.
- Auto-starting servers - Defining which OMAG Servers, if any, should be started automatically by the OMAG Server Platform when it starts.
Transport Level Security (TLS)
Transport level security describes the security applied to API calls made between servers. The most commonly known transport level security is SSL.
See Transport Level Security in Egeria and Certificates for information on setting up transport level security in the OMAG Server Platform.
