Using separate ports in EFM
You can make Edge Flow Manager (EFM) listen to separate ports for UI and C2 type of
requests. To do so, you need to uncomment the
#efm.server.c2Port= property in the
efm.properties file, and set a valid port number as the value of the
The EFM REST API can be divided into two logical parts. The first group comprises
the REST endpoints which are used by the users to create flows, manage credentials, and so on
through the UI, called UI endpoints. The second group comprises the REST endpoints which are
used by the MiNiFi agent to communicate with EFM, called C2 endpoints. With the default
configuration, EFM listens to port configured with the
property for all kinds of requests.
There could be cases where distinction between the UI and C2 traffic needs to be made on the network level.
A property is introduced in the
efm.properties file to enable
separate UI and C2 communication.
By default it is commented out so EFM listens to the port set with the
efm.server.c2Portproperty and set a valid port number.
