Installing API Gateway

Tanium Cloud automatically handles installations and upgrades for API Gateway.

Use the Tanium Console Solutions page to install API Gateway and choose either automatic or manual configuration:

  • Automatic configuration (Tanium Core Platform 7.4.2 or later only): API Gateway is installed with any required dependencies and other selected products. This option is the best practice for most deployments. For more information about the automatic configuration for API Gateway, see Tanium Console User Guide: Import all modules and services.
  • Manual configuration: Manually install API Gateway and the required dependencies. For more information, see Import API Gateway.

Before you begin

Import API Gateway

Perform the following steps to install the API Gateway solution on the Tanium Server.

If you have multiple Tanium Servers in an active-active configuration, you only need to perform these steps on one Tanium Server if you have Tanium Core Platform 7.4.3.1204 or later.

  1. Sign in to the Tanium Console with an account that has the Administrator reserved role.
  2. From the Main menu, go to Administration > Configuration > Solutions.
  3. In the Content section, select the checkbox for API Gateway and click Install.

    If you need to install any prerequisite Tanium solutions or content, select the corresponding checkboxes for those solutions as well.

  4. Review the content to import and click Begin Install.

Manage solution dependencies

Other Tanium solutions are required for API Gateway to function (required dependencies) or for specific API Gateway features to work (feature-specific dependencies). See Solution dependencies.

Upgrade API Gateway

For the steps to upgrade API Gateway, see Tanium Console User Guide: Import, re-import, or update specific solutions. After the upgrade, verify that the correct version is installed: see Verify API Gateway version.

Verify API Gateway version

After you import or upgrade API Gateway, verify that the correct version is installed:

  1. Refresh your browser.
  2. From the Main menu, go to Administration > Shared Services > API Gateway to open the API Gateway Overview page.
  3. To display version information, click Info Info.
