Server Management Examples

Register a New Server

The Runtime Manager provides a REST API to manage servers and the applications deployed on them. A server has to first be registered into the Runtime Manager console to be managed.

To register a server you must first authenticate against the Anypoint Platform Authentication Manager and get an authentication token. With this token you need to obtain a registration token to be used to register a server.

Note: The Runtime Manager provides a script that registers a server automatically! No need to perform this sequence of requests manually.

Creating a Server Group

A server group is a set of servers that act as a single deployment target, in which instances of the applications are completely isolated from each other.

You can create a server group through a request such as:

  "name": "Group2",

Note: A server group can only be created from individual servers, you can't create a server group from other existing server groups or clusters.

Creating a Cluster

A Cluster is a set of servers that act as a single deployment target, in which instances of the application are aware of one another and share common information and synchronize statuses.

You can create a multicast cluster through a request like this:

{   "name": "cluster\\_name",
"multicastEnabled": "true",
"servers": [ {"serverId": 2} ]

The cluster can also be configured as unicast, in that case you must specify the IP address of each server:

{  "name": "cluster\\_name",
   "multicastEnabled": "false",
   "servers": [ {"serverId" : 2,  "serverIp":""} ]

Working with Servers

After a server is registered in Runtime Manager, you can request information about it through a call like this:


You can also request for the full list of registered servers through a call like this:


To unregister a server, you must delete it from the Runtime Manager with a request like this:


The response of this call is always No Content for application deletion, whether the applications existed initially or not.

Working with Server Groups

List the server groups:


Retrieve the information of a particular server group:


Add a server to a server group:


After adding a server to a server group, all applications associated to that particular server group are deployed into the new server.

You can add servers that are not currently running to a server group.

If you attempt to add a server that already belongs to a server group, the request fails.

Remove a server from a server group:


When a server is removed from the server group then the applications living in that server will remain in it.

Working with Applications

An application target is a target to which you can deploy applications, it may either be a server, server group, or a cluster.

A deployment is a resource handled in the Runtime Manager. To create a deployment, you must execute the following request:

POST -H "Content-Type: multipart/form-data"
file: octet/stream, artifactName: "test", targetId:"1"

You can check for the status of the applications in your organization through the following call:


The call below deletes a specified application:


The response to this call is always No Content for application deletion, whether the applications existed initially or not.

The call below changes the binary file of the application (in this case to a patch with the new file):

PATCH{applicationId} -H "Content-Type: multipart/form-data"
file: octet/stream

If the last request is done without an attached file, Runtime Manager assumes you want to redeploy the same file that currently exists.

The request below starts an application:

  "desiredStatus": "STARTED"

The request below stops an application:

  "desiredStatus": "STOPPED"
