Anypoint Platform January update: improved usability and policy management

This week we’ve released a number of updates to Anypoint Platform, including new versions of API Manager, Anypoint Analytics, Anypoint API Gateway, Anypoint MQ and Anypoint Partner Manager. These updates provide improved usability for Anypoint Platform admins and owners.

API Manager 1.8.0

This release delivers a new admin user experience and improves policy management for API administrators with the following features:

API Administration

Based on user feedback, we’ve redesigned API Manager to give administrators more flexibility. A new summary panel now displays API proxy status, API version history, and rich version descriptions (e.g. owners, apps, policies, SLA tiers, etc.) — all without any expand/collapse clicking. Additionally, an API can now have multiple owners.

Application Management

Organization owners now have a single place to access and manage all applications; you can easily find your apps for contract approval/revocation.

 

January update 2

Gateway Awareness & Policy Ordering

Users now have control over the sequence in which their API policies are enforced. Additionally, only policies supported by the Gateway tracking your API will be offered for configuration.

Anypoint Analytics APIs now support OAuth tokens in addition to JSON Web Tokens (JWT) for calling the Anypoint Analytics Query and Reports API. Additionally, going to the analytics homepage directly without a validation token now redirects the user to the Anypoint Platform login page.

  • Custom policies support Dataweave and now any custom policy can be published to Anypoint Exchange,
