Important: You must grant consent to the API in K2 Management using a Global Admin account-- if this is not done P&D will fail with "Primary Credential Not Authenticated” errors
How do I get the tool?
You can automatically download the tool by navigating to the K2 Management site and adding “/remote” to the end of the URL.
Choose “save file” and then run the .exe from it’s downloaded location:
Note: This is a self-extracting exe that is preconfigured for the instance it is downloaded from. Do not attempt to run this .exe to set up P&D on another K2 instance.
What does the file look like?
How do I use the P&D tool?
The tool is not much different than the P&D MMC tool-- executing the .exe will prompt for credentials to connect to your K2 Cloud instance:
The above will change in Update 3, you will not input you credentials anymore instead it will popup MSOnline to authorize before the app opens like below. The app also now supports MFA.
From here you can choose to Create or Deploy a package, which will give you the MMC look and feel.
Thank you for the info Michael!
From the instructions: "Note: This is a self-extracting exe that is preconfigured for the instance it is downloaded from. Do not attempt to run this .exe to set up P&D on another K2 instance."
This part confused me. We have three KUIDs, for Dev, Test, and Prod. I considered these as separate "instances"; but the tool is the same for all three, and all three KUIDs can be interacted with from any of the app instances. Maybe if the environments were not set up to interoperate there would have been an issue. In my case, Michael told me I only needed to download the app once. The AAD Consent step must be executed from K2 Management separately for each KUID, however.
