Overview Of IBM Datapower API Management Job Support:
IBM datapower API Management (IBM APIM) is the API Management platform for the use in the API Economy. IBM API Management enables the users to create, assemble, manage, secure & to socialize web application programming of a interfaces (APIs).
It runs as the Virtual appliance on a Virtual machine & uses the IBM DataPower SOA Appliances as gateways.It provides an developer portal for the application developers & to view published on a APIs. An administration portal allows users to establish the policies for APIs such as the self-registration, quotas, key management & the security policies.
An analytics engine provides an role-based analytics for the API owners, solution administrators & a application developers in order to manage the APIs & to ensure service levels are being to achieved.Swagger (now called OpenAPI) and documents can be loaded & parsed into APIs. APIs can be created by describing the input & an output in the API Manager User Interface by configuration.
APIs can then be decorated with the additional data in the form of a tags, binary documentation & documentation URLs. APIs can proxy an existing API or to use an assembly where a flow is created. In such an assembly the flow it is possible to call out to the other services, transform the response data, redact information & a map response data from external APIs to the response of a API.
Plans can be created which the specify rate limits, whether the sign ups need to be approved, & a collection of the APIs to offer to developers. Plans can be published to an specific environment.An environment consists of a management server & an API gateway. Plans published to an environment can be visible in a developer portal, enabling developers to sign up to plans & use the APIs contain within.
API business owners can customize their developer portal with their branding to the advertise, market, socialize & to sell APIs. Plans published to an environment can be invoked on a API gateway, delegating to the API gateway responsibility for rate limits, rejecting unknown users & a scalability. The API Gateway is one or more IBM DataPower Gateway devices.The API gateway collects invocation of a metrics which are in available
