In 2012 we introduced the WSO2 API Manager as the latest addition to the WSO2 Product platform. The WSO2 API Manager is the first and only open source API Management platform that can help an enterprise address all their business API needs.
The WSO2 API Manager combines the ability to extend data, processes and services out to customers, partners and other business units as APIs with the power to secure, protect and monitor API interactions. It allows developers to rapidly find, subscribe to, and evaluate APIs available in an enterprise.
Despite its short existence the WSO2 API Manager has already undergone several release versions, each bringing in better functionality and enhanced performance capabilities to the product.
The webinar will briefly review how WSO2 API Manager provides complete API lifecycle governance—from creating to publishing, deprecating and retiring APIs—and how the API Store creates an intuitive Apple App Store-like experience for developers accessing APIs. The session then will examine several new features in WSO2 API Manager 1.3, including:
- Google Analytics integration.
- Authentication by resource.
- A built-in Try-IT tool for testing APIs.
- Restrictive API visibility to manage public versus private APIs.
- Application-level throttling.
- Access token revoking functionality.
- Fault statistics.
- Enhanced self-registration.
