The API 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.

The following topics explain further details about the API Microgateway, its architecture and capabilities, and how to configure, deploy and troubleshoot it:
