APIIDA API Gateway Manager complements CA API Gateway, the leading API Management solution by our partner CA Technologies. It enables organizations to easily and reliably monitor and manage multiple CA API Gateway instances in distributed environments.
Features such as Health Check, Alarming and a powerful Dashboard help to quickly respond to problems and speed mean time to repair, thus maintaining critical business processes. One-Click Migration and Service Management automate the migration of APIs between instances, a task that was previously carried out manually and prone to error, thus ensuring a continuous DevOps process and accelerate new service deployments.
THE SOLUTION AT A GLANCE
APIIDA API Gateway Manager offers an easy means of managing and monitoring existing CA API Gateway instances, using a configurable dashboard.
Dashboard and Alerts
APIIDA API Gateway Manager instantly creates an overview of the current status of managed CA API Gateways and services. The health metric is calculated on the basis of response times, access failures and internal tests. The tests can be generated using APIIDA API Gateway Manager or, alternatively, imported from a SOAP-UI test case. They also serve as a basis for initiating automatic alerts in the event of a problem (by e-mail, Slack or HipChat). The status of all instances and services is clearly summarized in a matrix view. A freely configurable dashboard can be individually tailored to create the desired view.
One-Click Migration A smart service analysis automatically detects changes between different versions of an API and directly incorporates them in the desired environment. Wildcards are automatically placed for various backend systems and comments are automatically added to the service for each version. Automatic versioning also makes it clear, which service version is running on which API Gateway.
Permanent monitoring helps to quickly identify faulty services. Thanks to version history, previous versions of an API can be restored manually or fully automated, thus minimizing downtime.
By closely integrating Git version management, templates and previous versions can easily be published. Categorization is possible when importing new versions. Optional, automatic publication also enables the CA API Gateway to be easily connected to existing DevOps solutions, if necessary.
Easy Installation and Configuration
APIIDA API Gateway Manager is installed as a virtual appliance or docker image. This ensures easy installation into the existing infrastructure. Existing gateways and their services are instantly integrated by entering the address and login details.
Organizations using APIIDA API Gateway Manager benefit from:
• Efficiency: Time savings in API management thanks to quick and easy migration and management of new versions.
• Business Continuity: Active monitoring and alerts ensure maximum service availability and thus business continuity.
• Business Integration: The adaptable dashboard can easily be configured to suit individual needs and infrastructure requirements, enabling focus on key business drivers.
• DevOps: Closely integrated development and operation thanks to continuous deployment features.
• Secure Migration: Migration of new service versions with the option of easily reverting back to previous versions in the event of migration problems.
