This blog demonstrates the installation of atom in DellBoomi

What is an Atom?
Atom is a single-tenant, single node runtime engine to execute the integrations developed in boomi. We can install Atom directly into your local network which is required for an on-premise deployment model.
Now, let us see the steps to install an atom
Firstly, log onto Boomi platform (https://platform.boomi.com/) with user name and password.
Once, you have logged into Boomi platform, you will be able to view Home page.
Now click on Services followed by Integration. You will see Build page.
Click on Manage-> Atom Management tab.
You can see New tab on the left corner beside filter. Click on it. You can then find Atom and Environment, Click on atom.
Once you click on atom, you will find an atom set up popup where you have to set up preference as local (as we are concerned about local atom)and select operating system based on the configuration of your machine.
We have 2 ways of authenticating boomi atomsphere account with runtime.
- Authenticating with username and password
- By using token
Security Options refer to an option of generating token and use it for atom installation. Instead of authenticating with username and password, we can use token and authenticate with atomsphere boomi account.A token is valid only for the account in which it was generated. Tokens expire after a set amount of time ranging from 30 minutes to 24 hours.
