General API Manager questions

What is WSO2 API Manager?

WSO2 API Manager is a complete solution for creating, publishing and managing all aspects of an API and its life cycle. See About API Manager.

What is the open source license of the API Manager?

Apache Software License Version 2.0

How do I download and get started quickly?

Go to http://wso2.com/products/api-manager to download the binary or source distributions. See Getting Started.

Is their commercial support available for WSO2 API Manager?

It is completely supported from evaluation to production. See WSO2 Support.

What are the default ports opened in the API Manager?

See Default Ports of WSO2 Products.

Can I get involved in APIM development activities?

Not only are you allowed, but also encouraged. You can start by subscribing to dev@wso2.org and architecture@wso2.org mailing lists. Feel free to provide ideas, feedback and help make our code better. For more information on contacts, mailing lists and forums, see Getting Support.

Installation questions

Do you provide automated installation scripts based on Puppet or similar solutions?

Yes. For information, contact us.

Is it possible to connect the API Manager directly to an LDAP or active directory, so that it offers the REST APIs an authentication method?

Yes. You can configure the API Manager with multiple user stores. See Configuring User Stores.

Clustering and distributed deployment questions

Where can I look up details of different deployment patterns and clustering configurations of the API Manager?

See WSO2 clustering and deployment guide.

What is the recommended way to manage multiple artifacts in a product cluster?

For artifact governance and lifecycle management, we recommend you to use a shared WSO2 Governance Registry instance.

Is it recommended to run multiple WSO2 products on a single server?

This is not recommend in a production environment involving multiple transactions. If you want to start several WSO2 products on a single server, you must change their default ports to avoid port conflicts. See Changing the Default Ports with Offset.

Security questions

How can I manage authentication centrally in a clustered environment?

You can I enable centralized authentication using a WSO2 Identity Server based security and identity gateway solution, which enables SSO (Single Sign On) across all the servers.

How can I manage the API permissions/visibility?

To set visibility of the API only to selected user roles in the server, see API Visibility.

How can I add security policies (UT, XACML etc.) for the services?

This should be done in the backend services in the Application Server or WSO2 ESB.
