Installing with the top-level CR on OpenShift

Use the single, top-level APIConnectCluster CR to deploy API Connect on OpenShift.

About this task

When you deploy API Connect with a top-level CR, all of the subsystems are deployed in the same namespace. The CR contains a section for each subsystem; configure deployment settings in the appropriate section for each subsystem.

If you want to install multiple API Connect instances, for example dev, uat, and prod, the recommended configuration is to have single API Connect and Datapower operators installed globally in the openshift-operators namespace and each API Connect instance installed in its own namespace using a top-level CR.
