This guide demonstrates how to integrate an external WSO2 API Manager (APIM) with WSO2 G-Reg. For information on installing WSO2 API Manager features internally within WSO2 G-Reg, see  Installing WSO2 API Manager Features .

Introduction

WSO2 Governance Registry is a registry-repository for storing and managing metadata related to services and other artifacts. Services (SOAP or REST) in WSO2 G-Reg are implemented as configurable governance artifacts (RXT files)which you create using the G-Reg Publisher or its Management Console. Usually, in WSO2 APIM service publication is done using the APIM Publisher Web interface. Instead, you can integrate WSO2 APIM with WSO2 G-Reg, to directly publish APIs to APIM Publisher using the services deployed in the WSO2 Governance Registry.

This guide explains how to configure the two products to expose services in the G-Reg as APIs in the APIM.

Prerequisites

Follow the steps below to set up the required prerequisites before starting the integration.

  1. Download WSO2 API Manager (1.9.x versions), and start the server. For instructions on running WSO2 APIM, see  Running the Product.
  2. Download WSO2 Governance Registry (version 5.0.0 and above) 
  3. Change the default port of WSO2 G-Reg (e.g. set a port offset of 1)to avoid port conflicts that may arise when running more than one WSO2 products on the same server. For instructions, see Changing the Default Ports with Offset.
  4. Start the WSO2 G-Reg server.  For instructions on running WSO2 G-Reg, see Running the Product.

Configuring WSO2 G-Reg

Follow the steps below to configure WSO2 G-Reg to publish services on it to WSO2 APIM.

  1.  Log in to the G-Reg Management Console using the following URL and admin/admin credentials: https://10.100.5.72:9444/carbon
  2. Click Extensions. and then click Lifecycles.
  3. Click the corresponding View/Edit Link of the ServiceLifeCycle as shown below.
    edit the ServiceLifeCycle configuration
  4. Replace the <execution forEvent="Publish" class="org.wso2.carbon.governance.registry.extensions.executors.apistore.ApiStoreExecutor"> element in the configuration with a code block which defines an execution element in production state as shown in the example below. Add the API Manager credentials in it, so that it provides the API Manager's endpoint, username and password as executor parameters.

    Alternatively you can do this change in the <GREG_HOME>/repository/resources/lifecycles/ServiceLifeCycle.xml file and then restart the G-Reg server.

    <execution forEvent="Publish" class="org.wso2.carbon.governance.registry.extensions.executors.apistore.ServiceToAPIExecutor">
       <parameter name="apim.endpoint" value="http://localhost:9763/"/>
       <parameter name="apim.username" value="admin"/>
       <parameter name="apim.password" value="admin"/>
       <parameter name="apim.env" value="dev"/>
       <parameter name="default.tier" value="Unlimited"/>
       <parameter name="throttlingTier" value="Unlimited,Unlimited,Unlimited,Unlimited,Unlimited"/>
    </execution>

    If you need to publish a REST service  to WSO2 API Manager, replace the  <execution forEvent="Publish" class="org.wso2.carbon.governance.registry.extensions.executors.apistore.ApiStoreExecutor">  element in the  <GREG_HOME>/repository/resources/lifecycles/ServiceLifeCycle.xml  file with a code block which defines an  execution  element in  production  state as shown in the example below. Add the API Manager credentials in it, so that it provides the API Manager's endpoint, username and password as executor parameters.

    <execution forEvent="Publish" class="org.wso2.carbon.governance.registry.extensions.executors.apistore.RestServiceToAPIExecutor">
       <parameter name="apim.endpoint" value="http://localhost:9763/"/>
       <parameter name="apim.username" value="admin"/>
       <parameter name="apim.password" value="admin"/>
       <parameter name="apim.env" value="dev"/>
       <parameter name="default.tier" value="Unlimited"/>
       <parameter name="throttlingTier" value="Unlimited,Unlimited,Unlimited,Unlimited,Unlimited"/>
    </execution>
  5. Click Save.

  6. Click Yes in the message which pops up.
