Each API consists of one or more operations, and each API can be added to one or more products. To use an API, developers subscribe to a product that contains that API, and then they can call the API’s operation, subject to any usage policies that may be in effect. Common scenarios include: Securing mobile infrastructure by gating access with API keys, preventing DOS attacks by using throttling, or using advanced security policies like JWT token validation. Enabling ISV partner ecosystems by offering fast partner onboarding through the developer portal and building an API facade to decouple from internal implementations that are not ripe for partner consumption. Running an internal API program by offering a centralized location for the organization to communicate about the availability and latest changes to APIs, gating access based on organizational accounts, all based on a secured channel between the API gateway and the backend. The system is made up of the following components: The API gateway is the endpoint that: Accepts API calls and routes them to your backends. Verifies API keys, JWT tokens, certificates, and other credentials. Enforces usage quotas and rate limits. Transforms your API on the fly without code modifications. Caches backend responses where set up. Logs call metadata for analytics purposes. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login to add an answer.
