Apiman Limiting Policies
In this, the sixth article in the series on apiman, JBoss' new API Management framework, we’ll examine how apiman enables you to govern access to managed APIs through the use of rate limiting policies.
The runtime core of apiman is the API Gateway and the policies that it applies to incoming requests to APIs. apiman is configured out of the box with a variety of policies that can be used to govern access to APIs managed by the API Gateway based on IP address, user authentication, and usage levels. From its first release, apiman has supported rate limiting policies, where the upper limit for use of an API could be governed by a policy. In its new 1.1.6 release, apiman has expanded this support to include quota based limiting policies.
Customizing JBoss apiman Through Policy Plugins
This is the second in a series of articles exploring API management with JBoss apiman. The first article was a general introduction to apiman for impatient users where in only 10 minutes we installed apiman, created users and organizations, and APIs, policies, contracts, and client apps. In this article, we’ll take the first step toward customizing apiman by creating new plugins to implement API policies.
