API Gateway

A runtime, backend component (an API proxy) developed using WSO2 ESB. API Gateway secures, protects, manages, and scales API calls. It intercepts API requests, applies policies such as throttling and security using handlers and manages API statistics. Upon validation of a policy, the Gateway passes Web service calls to the actual backend. If the service call is a token request, the Gateway passes it directly to the Key Manager. 

When the API Manager is running, you can access the Gateway using the URL https://localhost:9443/carbon. You integrate a monitoring and statistics component to the API Manager without any additional configuration effort. This monitoring component integrates with WSO2 Business Activity Monitor, which can be deployed separately to analyze events. For more information, see Publishing API Runtime Statistics.
