Introduction: Layer7 API Developer Portal

Layer7 API Developer Portal (
API Portal
) allows API owners to control how APIs are published, enables consumers to discover what services are available, and helps operations teams monitor API performance by integrating with enterprise-grade API monitoring tools.

API Portal
simplifies API discovery for developers and provides them with access to enterprise data to build apps fast. Relationships with developers, partners, and third parties are easily managed. And analytics provide valuable operational data.
Developers can use the
API Portal
to:
  • Discover what APIs are available and to apply for access.
  • Receive authorization to use APIs and get API keys.
  • Get started on development faster with educational tools including sample applications, API Explorer, and code generation.
API Portal
uses a containerized architecture that supports the environments where your apps and APIs reside to ease deployment, migration, and upgrade overhead. Portal components are deployed within Docker containers, making it easier to swap/replace containers as new functionality rolls out. Regardless of where you deploy, the solution uses the same interface to manage/deploy your APIs and to manage your developers. Built-in Portal APIs leverage existing developer tools to streamline integration between API management and CI/CD systems data. APIs enable integration with existing built-in tools and data warehouses or perform mashups between enterprise data and API data.
API Portal
supports existing content management systems (CMS) and analytics capabilities.
