Before you begin
Before you begin working with mimik’s Edge Cloud Engine and building microservices. Ensure you have these programs loaded and running on your computer.
Create a mimik developer account here.
Sign in to the mimik developer console.
In the mimik developer console, click Create Project.
Enter a Project Name and upload a logo image if you want to use your own Project Logo.
Create the project with the auto-generated Redirect URI, or enter your own.
Important: Edge Cloud Engine uses OAuth 2.0 for authentication and a redirect URI is necessary for this process. The standard format of a redirect URI is
com.<string>://<string>. You can learn more about it here.
Before opening the mimik Developer Console (portal or console), make sure you have the following programs running on your computer. (mimik edge services, Edge Cloud Engine OAuth Tool)
- Login from the developer console and click on Open OAuth Tool under Projects.
Important: This will launch the OAuth Tool you just installed. Make sure Edge Cloud Engine is running.
Select the Edge Cloud Engine project that you have created from previous step.
Click “Get edge Access Token” and login again in the prompted session. It is best to “Copy to Clipboard” the edge Access Token. You will need this moving forward.
Click Associate Device and Edge Cloud Engine should now be authenticated and authorized on your machine.
Important: The OAuth Tool provides you with edge access tokens, which allows you to deploy and run your edge microservices.
