The API Manager Microgateway is a specialized form of the WSO2 API Gateway. Its main characteristics are:
- The ability to execute in isolation without mandatory connections to other components (Key Manager, Traffic Manager, etc).
- The ability to host only a subset of specific APIs (defined in the API Publisher) instead of all.
- Immutability; if you update an API, you need to re-create the container/instance and hot deployment is not possible.
Microgateway offers you a proxy that is capable of performing security validations (OAuth, Signed JWT), in-memory (local) rate limiting and operational analytics.
