Installation Prerequisites

Anypoint API Community Manager is composed of a Salesforce organization with Community Cloud and a managed package that is installed in this organization. The managed package contains the components and data objects that interact with your Anypoint Platform organization.

The API Community Manager package is installed in a Salesforce organization that is independent of any other Salesforce organizations that your company might already have, so that the API community data is isolated from your company operational data, such as ERP or CRM data.

The Salesforce organization with Community Cloud is provisioned through and included in the Anypoint API Community Manager license from MuleSoft. You don’t need to procure this Salesforce organization separately, and you cannot reuse existing Salesforce licenses for API Community Manager. Find more information about API Community Manager licenses in the Licensing Overview section.

Installing, updating, or configuring API Community Manager must be done by a user account with the System Administrator profile in the API Community Manager Salesforce organization.

To install and configure the API Community Manager managed package in this Salesforce organization, set up and register a domain, enable communities, and deploy your domain.

Set Up and Register a Domain

  1. Log in to your API Community Manager Salesforce Organization.

  2. Go to Salesforce Set-up by selecting the gear icon and selecting Set-up.

  3. Search for My Domain using the Quick Find box and then select My Domain.

  4. Enter a domain name for your organization. The name can include up to 34 letters, numbers, and hyphens.

  5. Select Check Availability. If the name is already taken, choose a different one.

  6. Select Register Domain.

You will receive a notification email when your domain is registered and your subdomain name is ready for testing. This process can take a few minutes. You can continue with the next steps while you wait for the email.

After you complete API Community Manager installation and configuration, you can configure a full custom domain name, also known as a vanity domain. When you’re ready, refer to the Salesforce knowledge article Run your Salesforce Community under a custom domain.

Enable Communities Inside Your Organization

Using the domain name you selected in the previous step, follow the steps in Enable Salesforce Communities to enable communities inside your Salesforce organization.

Deploy Your Domain

Wait to receive the notification email that your domain is registered, and then continue with these steps.

  1. Log in to your API Community Manager Salesforce Organization.

  2. Go to Salesforce Set-up by clicking the gear icon and selecting Set-up.

  3. Search for My Domain using the Quick Find box and then select My Domain.

  4. If the screen indicates your domain is ready, select Log in.

  5. Select Deploy to Users.
