Getting Started

Getting started with the portal requires only one thing: a working sub-domain

The Tyk portal only requires one thing: a working domain name to bind to. So the first thing to do, is to ensure that you have a domain name set up, either with an A record pointing at your dashboard instance, or a hosts file entry that mimics this behaviour.

Once this is done, browse to your dashboard, and select “Your Developer ortal” -> “Set your portal domain” and enter your domain name.

The portal will then be available on http://yourdomain.com/portal/ (or whatever you have set as your portal_root in your configuration file).

Once this has been completed, you can set up the portal using the Portal Settings screen.
