In an earlier blog post, we talked about how Anypoint Exchange has evolved in the November 2017 release, to make it easier for consumers to discover, learn, test and consume API assets. In this blog, we will talk about latest features added to API Manager and how they tie with Anypoint Exchange to help users better manage and govern their API assets.
We’re excited to announce the release of our new Catalyst Accelerator for Retail, which illustrates API development best practices for retail-specific use cases. It provides developers with access to source code, API portals, and web experiences that are designed to showcase an application network for the following use-cases:
The size of the API economy is at an all-time high, with ProgrammableWeb reporting that there are over 17,000 APIs available on the web. The increasing demand for APIs has created a need to apply key API best practices.
But before you jump into creating APIs, in order to follow API best practices you need to ask yourself some questions. Why are you building an API? How should you mock your API?
Using Anypoint Platform to improve business processes at MuleSoft has been hugely successful. The good news is that with each successful integration, we are asked to do more and more and more, and we need to figure out how to manage the requests in a sustainable way.
The walkthrough lets you choose your own adventure by allowing you to pick a path that best matches your role in the example use case. At the top of each walkthrough page, under the title, is a blue label that indicates the permissions you need in the Anypoint Platform for APIs to perform the actions in the section.
I’m excited to announce a new capability released with Anypoint Platform June 2015: Business Groups. Business Groups provide a mechanism for delegating management and administration of Anypoint Platform to users within different business units or functions. Additionally, Business Groups provide complete isolation of resources allowing for multi-tenant use cases within your Anypoint Platform account.
Centralized administrators can create a multi-level, hierarchical structure of Business Groups and then delegate users from the specific groups to be administrators.
I am extremely happy to announce a significant set of updates to Anypoint Platform for APIs that were introduced this month. These updates will make it easier for API owners and administrators to publish their APIs in a way that is sure to further their successful adoption. The sections below describe the core new capabilities introduced in this release.
If you’re an assiduous reader of this blog, then you probably already heard about our vision around APIs, our Anypoint API Manager solution and all our RAML based stories. Those are our recommended way of approaching REST APIs and if you haven’t already, we all highly recommend you to take a look at them. However, we’re about connecting everything, everywhere. Thus we recognize that there are a lot of APIs out there built in plain old Java code and a migration process is not something you can do overnight.
MuleSoft provides the most widely used integration platform for connecting any application, data source or API, whether in the cloud or on-premises. With Anypoint Platform®, MuleSoft delivers a complete integration experience built on proven open source technology, eliminating the pain and cost of point-to-point integration.
