An open source approach to addressing any spectrum of the API lifecycle, monetization and policy enforcement.

WSO2 API Manager is an open source approach that addresses full API lifecycle management, monetization, and policy enforcement. It allows extensibility and customization, and ensures freedom from lock-in.

WSO2 API Manager is a unique open approach to full lifecycle API development, integration and management. As part of the larger WSO2 Integration Agile Platform, it is a central component used to deploy and manage API-driven ecosystems. It’s hybrid integration capabilities further simplify projects that span traditional as well as microservice environments. And unlike other API and lifecycle management products, it is fully open-source allowing for extensibility and customization.

Benefits

  • Reduce technology risk with extensible open source platform, rich documentation and community contributions.
  • Make data-driven decisions through API usage, analytics and insights.
  • The flexibility to deploy on-premise, use the public cloud, or both. Easily migrate in between these environments.
  • Integrated platform increases team capabilities and efficiency.
  • Designed to fit into Monolithic and Microservice Architectures with gateway and microgateway capabilities.
  • Granular access control provides security down to the API level.
  • Full Lifecycle API Management reduces need for future investments.

WSO2 API Manager is an open source enterprise-class solution that supports API publishing, lifecycle management, application development, access control, rate limiting and analytics in one cleanly integrated system.


Capabilities

API Gateway and Microgateway

Secure, low-latency access to microservices via WSO2 API Microgateway eliminates the need for a central gateway by enabling enterprises to apply API management policies in a decentralized fashion.

Hybrid API Management

Hybrid SaaS API management solutions enable you to get the best of both worlds, by delivering the benefits of on-premises, with minimal infrastructure overhead of cloud.

API Security

Authenticate and authorize API requests from any client or device type making requests to resource servers operating on traditional and microservice architectures.

API Store (Developer Portal)

An API marketplace incorporates business and human aspects that encourage API developers by providing tools, documentation, incentives such as monetization and supporting activities like evangelism, workshops, and hackathons.

Collaborative API and Application Lifecycle Management

Enables the design, implementation and documentation of APIs with business planning. Facilitates the management of the API Lifecycle across environments, data centers, and regions.

Business Insights and Anomaly Detection

Monitors system behavior, as well as API and application usage at operations and business levels.

Components

  • API Gateway/Microgateway

    Supports both forms of centralized and decentralized Gateway capabilities with high scalability characteristics to cater traditional and modern enterprise architectures.

    LEARN MORE
  • Key Manager

    The Key Manager is the STS (Security Token Service) that issues tokens that can be used by Resource servers for authentication and authorization of requests. It supports a wide range of OAuth grant types and is capable of issuing both opaque and signed self contained tokens.

    LEARN MORE
  • Traffic Manager

    Helps users to regulate API traffic, make APIs and applications available to consumers at different service levels, and secure APIs against security attacks. The Traffic Manager features a dynamic throttling engine to process throttling policies in real-time, including rate limiting of API requests.

    LEARN MORE
  • Analytics

    API Manager integrates with the WSO2 Analytics platform to provide reports, statistics and graphs on the APIs deployed in WSO2 API Manager. Enable Alerts to monitor APIs and react on anomalies. Gain insights by geography, user categories and more.

    Configure alerts to monitor these APIs and detect unusual activity, manage locations via geo location statistics and carry out detailed analysis of the logs.

    LEARN MORE
  • Storefront/marketplace

    Enables developers to discover APIs, test them before consumption, calculate monetization, get feedback and make feature requests.

    LEARN MORE
  • Publisher

    A structured GUI designed for API creators to develop, document, scale and version APIs, while also facilitating more API management-related tasks such as publishing APIs, monetization and analyzing statistics.

    LEARN MORE
  • Designer/Studio

    An Eclipse-based SOA development environment. Developer Studio allows developers to define a project representing a complete Composite Application (C-App) spanning multiple products and features.
