Deployment issues

API key error during package deployment

If you are deploying a package containing only Knowledge Modules (KMs) by running the RunSilentInstall command on the command line, the following error is displayed:
“ERROR! Arguments: -apikey is not valid.”

Probable cause

The package containing KMs is unable to recognize the apikey parameter.


Run the command without specifying the API key as:


Windows: RunSilentInstall.exe
