Before beginning an installation of the Smart Instrumentation Web API software, verify that your servers meet the requirements in this section.
Smart Instrumentation Web API can be installed on its own server without Intergraph Smart® Instrumentation being installed but does require a Smart Instrumentation .ini file 2018 HF1 or higher to connect to the database. However, Report functionality and Patch requests are not available with this configuration.
To use Smart Instrumentation Web API to its fullest potential, a full installation of Smart Instrumentation 2018 HF1 or higher should be on the same server as Smart Instrumentation Web API and configured for use with it.
We recommend using an SSD drive for the Smart Instrumentation server.
