WSO2 API Manager (WSO2 API-M) is a powerful platform for creating, managing, consuming, and monitoring web APIs. It combines tried and tested SOA best practices with modern day API management principles to solve a wide range of enterprise challenges associated with API provisioning, governance, and integration.

WSO2 API Manager consists of several loosely coupled modules.

    * API Publisher
    * API Store
    * API Gateway
    * API Key Manager

The API publisher module allows API publishers to easily define APIs and manage them using a strong governance model that consists of well-established concepts such as, versioning and lifecycles. API consumers can use the API Store module to discover published, production-ready APIs and access them in a secure and reliable manner using unique API keys. The built-in API Gateway module provides powerful tools to secure and control the load on individual APIs.

WSO2 API Manager is based on the revolutionary WSO2 Carbon [Middleware a' la carte] framework. All the major features have been developed as reusable Carbon components.

Key Features

Design and Prototype APIs
- Design APIs, gather developer's feedback before implementing (API First Design).
- Design can be done from the publishing interface or by importing an existing Swagger definition.
- Deploy a prototyped API, provide early access to APIs, and get early feedback.
- Mock API implementation using Javascript.
- Support publishing SOAP, REST, JSON, and XML style services as XML. 
Create a Store of All the Available APIs
- Graphical experience similar to Android Marketplace or Apple App Store.
- Browse APIs by provider, tags, or name.
- Self-registration to developer community to subscribe to APIs.
- Subscribe to APIs and manage subscriptions on per-application basis.
- Subscriptions can be at different service tiers based on the expected usage levels.
- Role based access to API Store, which helps to manage public and private APIs.
- Manage subscriptions per-developer.
- Browse API documentation, download helpers for easy consumption.
- Comment on and rate APIs.
- Forum for discussing API usage issues (Available soon in a future version).
- Try APIs directly on the Store front.
- Internationalization (i18n) support. 
Publishing and Governing API use
- Publish APIs to external consumers and partners, as well as internal users.
- Supports publishing multiple protocols including SOAP, REST, JSON, and XML style services as APIs.
- Manage API versions and deployment status by version.
- Govern the API lifecycle (publish, deprecate, retire).
- Attach documentation (files, external URLs) to APIs.
- Provision and Manage API keys.
- Track consumers per API.
- One-click deployment to API Gateway for immediate publishing.
Control Access and Enforce Security
- Apply Security policies to APIs (authentication and authorization).
- Rely on OAuth2 standard for API access (implicit, authorization code, client, SAML, IWA Grant type).
- Restrict API access tokens to domains/IPs.
- Block a subscription and restrict a complete application.
- Associate API available to system defined service tiers.
- Leverage XACML for entitlements management and fine grained authorization.
- Configure Single Sign-On (SSO) using SAML 2.0 for easy integration with existing web apps.
- Powered by WSO2 Enterprise Service Bus (WSO2 ESB).
Route API Traffic
- Supports API authentication with OAuth2.
- Extremely high performance pass-through message routing with sub-millisecond latency.
- Enforce rate limiting and throttling policies for APIs by consumer.
- Horizontally scalable with easy deployment into cluster using proven routing infrastructure.
- Scales to millions of developers/users.
- Capture all statistics and push to pluggable analytics system.
- Configure API routing policies with capabilities of WSO2 Enterprise Service Bus.
- Powered by WSO2 Enterprise Service Bus.            
Manage Developer Community
- Self-sign up for API consumption.
- Manage user account including resetting password.
- Developer interaction with APIs via comments and ratings.
- Support for developer communication via forums (Available soon in a future version).
- Powered by WSO2 Identity Server (WSO2 IS).
Govern Complete API Lifecycle
- Manage API lifecycle from cradle to grave: create, publish, block, deprecate, and retire.
- Publish both production and sandbox keys for APIs to enable easy developer testing.
- Publish APIs to partner networks such as ProgrammableWeb (Available soon in a future version).
- Powered by WSO2 Governance Registry (WSO2 G-Reg).
Monitor API Usage and Performance
- All API usage published to pluggable analytics framework.
- Out-of-the-box support for the WSO2 Analytics Platform and Google Analytics.
- View metrics by user, API, and more.
- Customized reporting via plugging reporting engines.
- Monitor SLA compliance.
- Powered by WSO2 Data Analytics Server (WSO2 DAS).      
Pluggable, Extensible, and Themeable
- All components are highly customizable through styling, theming, and open source code.
- Storefront implemented with Jaggery (jaggeryjs.org) for easy of customization.
- Pluggable to third-party analytics systems and billing systems (Available soon in a future version).
- Pluggable to existing user stores including JDBC and LDAP.
- Components usable separately. 
- Store front can be used to front APIs that are routed through third-party gateways such as, Intel Expressway Service Gateway.
- Support for Single Sign On (SSO) using SAML 2.0 for easy integration with existing web apps.
Easily Deployable in Enterprise Settings
- Role based access control (RBAC) for managing users and their authorization levels.
- Store-front can be deployed in DMZ for external access with the Publisher inside the firewall for private control.
- Different user stores for developer focused store-front and internal operations in the publisher.
- Integrates with enterprise identity systems including LDAP and Microsoft Active Directory.
- Gateway can be deployed in DMZ with controlled access to WSO2 Identity Server (for authentication/authorization) and governance database behind a firewall.
Support for Creating Multi-tenanted APIs
- Run a single instance and provide API Management to multiple customers.
- Share APIs between different departments in a large enterprise.
Publishing and Governing API Use
- Document an API using Swagger.
- Restrict API access tokens to domains/IPs.
- Ability to block a subscription and restricting a complete application.
- Ability to revoke access tokens.
- Separate validity period configuration for application access token.
- OAuth2 authorization code grant type support.
- Configuring execution point of mediation extensions.
Monitor API Usage and Performance
- Improved dashboard for monitoring usage statistics (Filtering data for a date range, More visually appealing widgets).   

System Requirements

  1. Minimum memory - 2GB
  2. Processor - Pentium 800MHz or equivalent at minimum
