Swagger/WSDL based API promotion for Axway API-Manager V7

This project provides you with a tool that simplifies your DevOps experience with the Axway API-Manager Version 7.x.

The program works based on the API-Definition (as Swagger or a WSDL (Beta - Not for production)) + an API-Configuration-File and replicates this "state" into the API-Manager. Consider the API-Definition + API-Config as the "desired" state and API-Manager has the "actual" state. This program will compare both, the desired with the actual state, and performs all necessary actions to bring the API-Manager API into the desired state.

Watch this video (28 min): to get an overview + demo.

With that, an API-Developer is just providing the Swagger-File or WSDL (e.g. Code-Generated or using a Swagger-Editor) and the API-Config. When checked in, the CI/CD-Pipelines picks it up and replicates it into the API-Manager. This includes Zero-Downtime-Upgrade of existing applications, which might have an active subscription to an API. Learn more in the documentation.
