  1. Log in to the Management Console UI (https://localhost:9443/carbon) using admin/admin credentials. Then, select Source View sub menu under the Service Bus menu.

  2. Source view contains the entire configuration of the API Gateway. You can find sequences, filters, properties, APIs etc. defined there. Search for the name of the API you want, and edit its content wrapped by the <api></api> elements.


    You should not remove the default filter mediator and handler configurations in your API. They are needed for routing requests based on the throttling/security policies. If you want to add a custom mediator in the insequence path of a request, add that inside the filter mediator configuration as shown in the following example.

    Code Block
    <filter source="$ctx:AM_KEY_TYPE" regex="PRODUCTION">
          <class name="org.wso2.carbon.custommediator.CustomDataMediator"/>
  3. Click Update to save your changes.

    Alternatively, you can also select the APIs sub menu under the Service Bus menu. This allows you to isolate and edit a specific API rather than viewing the entire source code.
