Does the fact that I have ODK aggregate means that I have ODK central

Hello, I have a question as it was not me who set up ODK. I know that we have ODK Aggregate. My understanding that ODK Central is a new server, does it mean I have ODK Central or do I need to install it specifically? I am asking because I want to use an API to retrieve the forms basic info but Briefcase API seems to be extremely complex.

Hi @eka! ODK Aggregate and ODK Central are two separate servers and aren't bundled together. That means that if you have Aggregate already, you'll also need to install Central. One option is to continue using Aggregate for your existing projects, then use Central for any new projects. Once you're using Central, you'll have access to its REST API.

Hope that helps!
