Happy Holidays from WSO2 Cloud Team

From all of us at WSO2 Cloud team, we are wishing you the most joyful holiday season and an amazingly happy new year!

WSO2 Cloud Holiday Card 2016

2015 has been a great year for us with the successful production launch of WSO2 API Cloud, its rapid adoption by many companies, and the many features we have rolled out through the recent months: uptime dashboard, interactive tutorial, firewall compatibility, custom URLs, API store branding, custom publisher information – to name just a few.

We look forward to hosting your APIs and applications in 2016 and beyond!

Happy Holidays!

API Cloud Uptime Dashboard

It just became easier to see if we follow our 99.9% uptime SLA for WSO2 API Cloud. We launched a public Uptime Dashboard at

WSO2 API Cloud Uptime Dashboard

The dashboard is provided by Pingdom so it is independent of WSO2. Note that the reported performance includes not just the actual WSO2 API Cloud response time but also the network latency, as Pingdom tests are done from multiple locations across North America and Europe.

Want a reliable transparent API management solution with guaranteed SLA – try WSO2 API Cloud.

API Gateway Default Ports are now 80/443

When WSO2 API Cloud launched initially, by default API Gateway was exposing APIs on ports 8280 and 8243. For customers with firewalls blocking these ports, this led to calls failing with { "error": "no response from server" }.

The workaround that we had for this was using Custom URL functionality – which changed both the Gateway URL and ports.

Now we made things even better, and no workarounds are required anymore:

From now on, default network ports for API Gateway are the standard port 80 for HTTP and port 443 for HTTPS – so things just work with no extra configuration required:

Note: for backward compatibility we will keep the old ports 8280 and 8243 also available for another couple of weeks. However, as we will be decommissioning their support in the future, all customers are advised to switch to ports 80/443.

API Cloud Interactive Tutorial

Too busy to read documentation or watch videos? No worries, WSO2 API Cloud now has interactive step-by-step tutorial that leads you through publishing your first API (based on the countries data from the World Bank) and invoking it from API Store:

Friendly callouts tell you where to click and what to type – so within a couple of minutes you get a pretty good understanding on how API design, publishing, and subscriptions work!

If this is the first time you log into API Cloud, the tutorial will start automatically.

Already have an account? No worries, you can always start the tutorial manually from Documentation menu:
