Note that this tutorial is not suited for production environments. Its only purpose is to enable you to setup a local test environment.

In this guide you will learn how to set up a local test environment, provide and consume APIs on the FSC Group. We will use the Controller, a web interface for managing your FSC components.

The target audience is system operators.


The following components are part of the FSC reference implementation setup :


The Controller is at the heart of the FSC reference implementation. It provides a web interface to manage the FSC reference implementation. Your Inways and Outways use the Controller to retrieve their configuration.


The Manager is the contact point for your organization. It negotiates Contracts.


The Inway functions as a gateway to the Services you offer to the Group.


The Outway is used by your organization to access services on the Group.

Transaction Log

The Transaction Log is a log of transactions made from and to your organization.

Audit Log

The Audit Log is a log of changes made to the FSC configuration of your organization.

PostgreSQL Database

The configuration of your Inways, the Services you provide and Contracts are stored in a PostgreSQL database.

In sum

You've learned about all the components used by the FSC reference implementation. Next up, lets setup our local environment.
