The instructions on this page will explain how features can be installed in a product and managed using the management console. All the features that are built into WSO2 products are available in the WSO2 Feature Repository. Therefore, if a specific feature is not installed in your product, you can install it using the WSO2 feature repository. Alternatively, if you have developed features, you can add them to the product by creating a new feature repository.
  1. Log on to the product's management console and select Features from the Configure menu as shown below.

WSO2 Carbon supports back-end, front-end separation where you can manage multiple back-end servers using a single front-end server. You can convert a given product either to a back-end server or to a front-end server. This conversion can be performed using the Feature Manager user interface.

If you want to get only a back-end server, you have to uninstall all the front-end features. To do that, select "Front-end" from the drop down menu as displayed in the example below.
