Edge for Private Cloud v. 4.17.09
You can install multiple instances of the Edge UI in a high availability scenario. However, after installing the two instances of the Edge UI, you must perform post-installation tasks in order to synchronize the property settings between the two.
Specifically, you must configure the two UI instances to have the same value for the following properties:
application.secret=value mail.smtp.credential=value apigee.mgmt.credential=value
Additionally, if you configure them to use TLS, then you must ensure that you use the same cert and key on both instances.
Configure Edge UI instances using HTTP
- Log in to the node hosting the first Edge UI instances (do not log in to the UI itself, but as a user on the node).
- Open /opt/apigee/edge-ui/conf/apigee.conf in an
editor and copy the values of the following properties for later use:
- Open /opt/apigee/edge-ui/conf/application.conf in
an editor and copy the values of the following property for later use:
- Log in to the node hosting the second Edge UI instances.
- Open /opt/apigee/customer/application/ui.properties on the second UI instance in an editor. If the file does not exist, create it.
- Add the following properties to /opt/apigee/customer/application/ui.properties,
including the values that you copied from the first UI instance:
Notice how you prefix these values with either conf_application_ or conf_apigee_.
- Save the file.
- Make sure /opt/apigee/customer/application/ui.properties
is owned by the apigee user:
> chown apigee:apigee /opt/apigee/customer/application/ui.properties
- Restart the second UI instance:
> /opt/apigee/apigee-service/bin/apigee-service edge-ui restart
Users can now log in to either UI instance.
Configure Edge UI instances using TLS/HTTPS
- Configure the first UI instance to use TLS/HTTPS as described in Configuring TLS for the management UI.
- Configure the second Edge UI instances as described above for HTTP to synchronize the required properties.
- Copy the JKS file containing the cert and key from the first UI instance to the node hosting the second UI instance.
- Configure the second UI instance to use TLS/HTTPS as described in Configuring TLS for the management UI.
