What do you get with webMethods API Management?
You can create a place for developers to access, learn about, interact with, ask questions about and test your REST and SOAP APIs. It’s not only good for developers—it’s good for you. You can collect analytics to understand your visitors and to track the popularity of your APIs. All within the environment you prefer—public cloud, private cloud or in the DMZ.
API Gateway enables policy-driven security, in lock step with webMethods Integration. You can secure and monitor access to back-end services from apps through your APIs. Support both transport- and message-layer security—authentication, authorization, digital encryption and digital signatures. You can even establish DMZ-strength security between consumer apps using your APIs and your internal servers—removing the need to risk opening additional firewall ports.
Use the Microgateway to secure and manage your microservices and to prevent main gateways from overloading across distributed environments. You can benefit from a very low runtime footprint and fast start-up. This includes multiple form factors—deploying as a Java® instance or as a Docker® container with a micro-Linux® host, for example. Choose between different levels of granularity and control, and benefit from a standalone or sidecar deployment.
Microservices help you develop or evolve applications quickly and get them to market market in a flash. But the complexity of distributed microservices environments creates operational challenges. AppMesh provides a much-needed context layer to manage your microservices. Without altering existing microservices or underlying code, webMethods AppMesh can help you apply business rules to drive application-specific behavior, application-level governance, and context-aware application routing and orchestration.
API Lifecycle Management
Oversee the entire API lifecycle—designing, developing, deploying, versioning and retiring. Manage your APIs with confidence by defining permissible transitions between states and by defining and tracking versions over time. Make sense of the complex interdependencies of APIs on various services and applications using an interactive graphical view of APIs and their relationships. Visualize the effects of changes beforehand to avoid unexpected issues and complications.
