Planning Your API Journey: The Lifecycle of an API

Tuesday, February 23, 2016
09:00 AM - 10:00 AM (PST)
Webinar Slides

API lifecycle management is critical when implementing a successful API strategy for your enterprise. An API has its own lifecycle to govern API design, development and management phases. It enables enterprises to effectively collaborate between businesses, developers and IT operations. This results in rapid development and deployment cycles with increasingly reliable, stable and available APIs.

WSO2 API Manager 1.10’s all new features provide out-of-the-box support for API lifecycle management and enables you to extend this functionality by providing your own extensions as part of its governance suite of functionality. This webinar will

  • Give insight into the default API lifecycle engaged with an API
  • Explain how to extend the default API lifecycle
  • Conduct a demonstration of extending the API lifecycle as a custom lifecycle
