Export API to non-LAC server

    Is it possible to export an API created using LAC, to a server that does not have LAC installed?  I saw in the documentation that node.js is not supported.  However, we use a dev-test-prod approach using separate servers and would like to deploy appropriately.  I was told that the APIs could be exported and run on servers that were not running the LAC engine when we went to production.

    Hello,

     

    I'm afraid that it wasn't precise what you were told.


    The APIs created with LAC can be exported from Dev/Test API Server and they are imported to Production API Server but both API Servers need "API Server" component of LAC.
    CA Live API Creator is comprised of API Creator/Data Explorer and API Server as shown in the following image:

    The developed APIs are exported from Dev/Test environment to Production like the following image:

    I hope that the above answers your questions satisfactorily.

     

    Best regards,

    Seiji
