WSO2 APP Manager(APPM) and WSO2 Enterprise Mobility Manager (EMM) integration

There are two separate cases for APPM and EMM integration

1. APPM and EMM on a single JVM. ex : EMM standalone pack.
2. APPM and EMM on separate JVMs. ex : clustered scenario

For the second case, There are some configurations which should be done. Follow the below steps to configure APPM and EMM on separate JVMs.

1. If you run APPM and EMM on same machine change the port offset of one pack. Let's change the port offset of APPM pack.

i) Change the port offset of carbon.xml to 10 which is in <APPM_HOME>/repository/conf directory.

 ex : Change the port as shown in light green
