Delivering Security Through Modern API Architecture
API technology and architecture play a crucial role in the modern organization by providing improved security across web, mobile, device, and system endpoints. This paper discusses the many ways in which an API-driven approach can protect critical resources and promote innovation.
How to Use OAuth to Integrate 3scale and Stormpath
In this tutorial, you’ll use the OAuth resource owner grant to integrate two RESTful solutions, 3scale and Stormpath, into your API-based app. By the end, you’ll have outsourced your user management layer and your API will be 100% under control.
How to Configure 3scale API Management to Gain Visibility and Control Over APIs Exposed Through SnapLogic Pipelines
This tutorial offers an overview of how to expose APIs for services integrated through SnapLogic and add API management capabilities using 3scale. This guide includes the setup for both solutions. Prior experience with SnapLogic and 3scale is not required.
Running zero-infrastructure APIs with Lambda, Amazon API Gateway, and 3scale
This guide takes you through the steps to implement an API service behind the Amazon API Gateway using AWS Lambda, Amazon’s event-driven compute service. Sample Lambda functions and configuration instructions are also included.
Performance Matters: Load testing and tuning for your API
This how-to describes the best way to successfully run a load test on your API. We’ll start with a simple, unmeasured API, and progress to adding an access control layer and making sure that everything is battle-tested and ready to handle production traffic.
Amazon is a fantastic platform for running APIs, so we put together our best practices into this short tutorial. Besides Amazon EC2, we’ll use the Ruby Grape gem to create the API interface and an NGINX gateway to handle access control.
The CrunchBase API gives developers access to query the CrunchBase dataset for both paginated lists of specific types and details about individual items providing endpoints for each of the primary item types.
Get up and running with 3scale API Management Platform in no time. How to quickly prototype the access control layer from the 3scale dashboard using the APIcast cloud API gateway. This is the first of the go-live steps detailed on the home page of your admin dashboard. Find more information on support.3scale.net.
Getting Started #2: Configuring API Access Policies in 3scale
Get up and running with 3scale API Management Platform in no time. How to apply access policies to differentiate between different tiers of users, give them different rate limits as well as access to different API methods. This is the second in the Fast Track to integration steps. Learn more at support.3scale.net.
Tutorial: 3scale – APIcast, an API Gateway for the Small Business and Startup
APItools is the most effective way to use APIs and stay in absolute control of API traffic. Troubleshoot, modify and monitor your API traffic by proxying HTTP(s) requests through APItools. Use it in the cloud or in your servers. Built wiht Lua and Nignx (OpenResty) and it’s open-source.
User video: Paul Butterworth getting started with 3scale API Management
In this video Paul Butterworth, CTO of Emotive, talks about getting started with 3scale and discusses the value of its distributed, hybrid architecture. 3scale is the leading self-serve API Management Platform, making it easy to open, distribute, control, and monetize APIs.
API Model Canvas for successful API strategies and programs
Manfred (@ManfredBo) presented the API Model Canvas at the APIStrat conference on November 20, 2015, in Austin. The API Model Canvas is intended to be used to create and run successful API strategies and programs in a sustainable way.
Microservices in action: How to actually build them
Andrzej from the 3scale team gave this talk during the API Meetup Barcelona about how to practically build microservices using AWS Lambda, Amazon API Gateway, the JAWS framework and 3scale API Management.
Integrating, exposing and managing distributed data with RESTful APIs and open source
This was a 1h demo and talk co-presented by Red Hat’s Cojan van Ballegooijen and 3scale’s Manfred Bortenschlager talking about data integration of various diverse sources via data virtualization. Then we exposed the data via RESTful APIs and added the 3scale API Management layer on top to get full control and visibility about API access.
