The Container Gateway form factor allows the
CA API Gateway
to be deployed in a PaaS environment as an industry-standard container.
The Container Gateway replaces the "Gateway Docker Appliance" that was available prior to version 9.3.
This chapter describes how to run the
CA API Gateway
in a Docker-native or an OpenShift Origin environment using these tools:
  • Docker
    • Engine (Docker CLI)
    • Machine
    • Compose
  • OpenShift
    • CLI
The Container Gateway configuration is intended for system administrators or experienced developers.
Before you use the Container Gateway, make sure you have the following prerequisites:
  • A license XML file for your
    CA API Gateway
  • A computer with at least 8GB of RAM
  • A high-speed Internet connection (initial download is about 1GB in size)
  • Access to the Docker image. The Container Gateway docker image can be obtained from caapim/gateway.
If you obtained the Gateway Docker image from a local Registry server (not the Docker Hub), contact your Registry server administrator for credentials.
