Registry

Assign your chosen implementation as shown in the example, providing configuration.

  • Properties (Servlet)

  • JSON (Vert.x)

apiman-gateway.registry=io.apiman.gateway.engine.es.PollCachingESRegistry
{
  "registry": {
    "class": "io.apiman.gateway.engine.es.PollCachingESRegistry",
    "config": {
      // <registry configuration>
    }
  }
}

Implementation Notes

io.apiman.gateway.engine.es.PollCachingESRegistry

Recommended. Works well in multi-node setups.

io.apiman.gateway.engine.es.CachingESRegistry

Works well in single-node setups.

io.apiman.gateway.engine.es.ESRegistry

Only recommended for very low volume or test setups; causes remote calls to be issued on every request.

Required Parameters

Integer

Cache polling interval in seconds.

  • Default Value: 10

  • Implementations: PollCachingESRegistry

Optional Parameters

Name Type Description

  • JSON (Vert.x)

apiman-gateway.metrics=io.apiman.gateway.engine.es.ESMetrics
{
  "metrics": {

Set the Apiman Manager metrics accessor implementation to enable Apiman Manager UI to provide some basic visualisations from your Elasticsearch data.

  • A commented-out segment should be in your apiman.properties already.

  • All the same global required and optional options are available.

# API Manager metrics settings.
apiman-manager.metrics.type=io.apiman.manager.api.es.EsMetricsAccessor

apiman-manager.metrics.es.client.type=es
# All options available as in global mandatory and optional
apiman-manager.metrics.es.client.protocol=${apiman.es.protocol}
apiman-manager.metrics.es.client.host=${apiman.es.host}
