Deploying Sterling Configurator backend (REST APIs) WAR file

From the supplied DVD or DVD image, copy the configurator.war package file, present inside the omni-configurator folder, to your system and deploy the WAR file on the application server of your choice.

Note: When deploying this WAR file on the application server, you must provide the context root as configurator.
Note: If you want to define a custom directory for the Sterling Configurator repositories, then pass the following JVM arguments while deploying the WAR file: -Dconfigurator.repository.path=<path_to_the_omniconfigurator_directory>. For example, -Dconfigurator.repository.path=C:\repo\omniconfigurator. By default, the application looks for the Sterling Configurator repositories in the <USER_HOME>/omniconfigurator directory. <USER_HOME> home directory location can vary from one operating system to another.

Deployment considerations for WebSphere

Ensure that you deploy Sterling Configurator and Sterling Configurator Visual Modeler in separate WebSphere profiles.

When deploying on WebSphere® Application Server, ensure that you select and set the following in the WebSphere administration console: Application Server > Server specific application settings > Installed applications > Application specific configurations > Manage Modules > Module specific deployment settings > Class loader order > Classes loaded with local class loader first (parent last).
