WaveMaker API Gateway
Comprehensive features, enterprise use case, Simple pricing
WaveMaker Gateway helps an Enterprise to deploy production ready APIs and provide full governance, security, versioning, rate limiting, metering and usage analytics. Most API Management products are priced ( #API calls) for the consumer web, but WaveMaker API Gateway is priced on fixed annual fee calculated on #endpoints published.
App and developer registration, API key generation and plan subscription are common features of this web portal
Supports describing, producing, consuming and visualizing RESTful web services using Swagger, the most popular specification standard
Supports various stages of API Lifecycle (Publish, Update, Deprecate and Sunset) for better management and governance
Create fine-grained policies for API Metering, Rate Limiting, Throttling, and Notification. Use default policies or override to apply custom policies.
Provides API Proxy that can scale to handle millions of API requests per day. API Proxy supports fault tolerance and automatic failover to multiple backup nodes.
Security and OAuth
Provides OAuth 2.0 authorization, OpenID Connect and HMAC-based authentication. Protection against cross-site scripting, SQL injections and brute force attacks
Comprehensive dashboards and reports about API usage along with business/operational analytics to API Publishers and API usage Metrics to API Consumers
Integrate with enterprise identity management (IAM) solutions to utilize corporate data for administrative access control as well as for Role Based Access Control of APIs
SOAP to REST
Automatic API and data transformation capabilities to accept incoming REST request and invoke SOAP API on the backend and vice versa
Web-based portal for Application Developers to explore, browse, invoke, test and subscribe to published APIs.
API Key Generation
API Keys on behalf of API Clients and provides (generation, revocation and refresh) capabilities to enable secure access.
App Developers can register their apps and obtain API Keys required to access APIs published in a secure fashion
* What is an API Endpoint?
An API Endpoint is a remote callable method (or service) that would be used in client Apps. The total number of Endpoints is an indicator of the size of API program and not the level of its usage.
Turbocharge API Consumption
API Launch needs promotion to the App developer community

Find out how developers dramatically reduced the time to build connected car apps by using WaveMaker Prefabs at the Apps World Hackathon.
See an example
WaveMaker enables App developers to easily integrate APIs and visually bind data so that they can rapidly develop responsive web and hybrid mobile Apps. WaveMaker enables developer events (Hackathons, Codefests) to promote APIs.
Fast and Easy Apps
WaveMaker RAD platform combines browser-based, drag-n-drop app creation with the power of continuos integration cloud (private for your event) making it super easy to build apps that use your APIs. Create functional components around your API (called ‘prefabs’), that developers can easily drag & drop into their applications.
Broaden API Consumption
Why limit use of your APIs to developers? WaveMaker’s easy WYSIWYG development environment empowers a much larger community to build apps around your APIs.
Get Hackathon Ready
Spin up hackathons that are customized for your APIs at a moment’s notice using WaveMaker Hackathon Platform. Generate fresh ideas and apps.
Simplify API Sandboxing
WaveMaker API Sandbox removes the bottleneck in testing modern, API-driven Apps by providing convenient way to mock REST API and provide test data relevant for the service.
Auto generation of Data
Automatically generate data for mock web services based on Swagger API documentation enables App developers (Northbound) to build in parallel with API implementation or service (Southbound)
Intelligent API mock service
API Mock service is designed to serve REST responses from an API Sandbox, including data and error responses, that enables App developers build their App to an API specification without the actual service being used.
Emulate APIs before they are available by using virtual services as a stand-ins. Developers can begin testing almost immediately and apps are in sync with the API release cycles.
