Added

  • Portal Dashboard:  New Proxy Errors List
    In order to act quickly on API, API key deployment, or Proxy connection issues, Portal administrators must rely on the Portal to inform them of these issues as they arise. In an ongoing effort to improve the manageability of Proxies enrolled with API Portal, Portal administrators can now view Proxy connection issues and any API or API key deployment issues in the new Proxy Errors list from the API Portal dashboard. See API Portal Dashboard to learn more.
    To be able to use the new Proxy Errors list in the API Portal Dashboard, ensure that you have installed the latest update of the Portal Integration Bundle on the API proxy.  For the latest version of the bundle supported by the Portal, see Compatibility Matrix.
  • Organization Tagging
    Recall that organizations are a way to group and manage related developers. In addition to viewing organizations and assigning developers to them, Portal administrators can add and edit organizations in API Management SaaS. The Portal now supports tagging for organizations to help administrators group related organizations by way of tagging. See Manage Organizations to learn more.
    You can also manage organization tags using the new
    /tenant-admin/1.0/tags
    endpoint in the Portal API (PAPI). See the latest PAPI 5.0.3 swagger fileto learn how you can use this endpoint to perform operations such as retrieving and creating organization tags, and updating tag-organization associations.
  • Support for EULA Updates
    End-User License Agreements (EULAs) are a requirement for all published APIs. Portal Admins and API Owners can manage EULAs in the Portal, which now includes the ability to edit EULA content that is currently referenced by published APIs.
  • New Endpoints in Portal API (PAPI)
    Portal 5.0.3 introduces a new set of endpoints labeled as
    api-management/1.0/tags
    for managing API tags and
    tenant-admin/1.0/tags
    for managing Organization tags. You can access these endpoints only through PAPI. The
    api-management/1.0/tags
    endpoint replaces the now deprecated
    /tags
    endpoint.
    • Support for Filtering and Deleting Tags
      Portal Administrators can now filter tags using the
      inUse=True/False
      filter and delete tags that are not associated with any API or organization using the new endpoint in the Portal API (PAPI).
    • Support for Renaming Tags
      Portal Administrators can now rename tags after it is created using the new endpoints.
    Another new endpoint,
    api-management/1.0/eulas
    has also been introduced for this release, allowing Portal users to perform tasks such as listing EULAs that can be applied to APIs, creating an API EULA, or updating/deleting an existing API EULAs. This new endpoint effectively replaces the now deprecated
    /ApiEulas
    endpoint.
    For more information, see Manage API Tags. For information about the new endpoints, see the latest PAPI 5.0.3 swagger file.

Changed

  • Enhanced Synchronization for API Plans
    The mechanism used to synchronize API plans between the Portal and API Gateway has been enhanced to improve reliability of synchronization operations.
    To start using the enhanced synchronization method for API plans, ensure you have installed the latest update of the Portal Integration Bundle on the API proxy. For the latest version of the bundle supported by the Portal, see Compatibility Matrix.
  • Spring Boot Library Upgrades
    The Spring Boot Libraries used in API Portal have been updated to provide additional security and performance updates to Portal components.
