Oracle Cloud provides a complete set of services to manage the lifecycle of APIs (application programming interfaces). Oracle Apiary lets API designers easily prototype and validate APIs so that their applications can better communicate with each other. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure API Gateway provides developers the capability to securely expose their application’s APIs for commercial or regulatory purposes. Oracle API Platform Cloud Service enables API operators to monitor and monetize APIs—across on-premises, Oracle Cloud, and third-party cloud environments.
Describe your APIs in OpenAPI. Deploy, protect and operate them with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure API Gateway
Developers can choose from a wide range of tools to create API descriptions in OpenAPI format which is supported by OCI API Gateway.
Support for the widely recognized OpenAPI standard enables third-party developers to easily adopt your organization’s APIs.
With stock response API support via OCI API Gateway, an API description can be quickly prototyped and tested by development teams. Having early feedback can help the team eliminate risk in writing the code.
Oracle API Gateway is a highly available virtual network appliance that can receive API calls at scale and route them to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure back-end services such as load balancers, compute, Kubernetes, and serverless functions.
Based on their application’s requirements, API developers can restrict API access within a private network (a regional subnet) or enable API access from the internet.
Serverless APIs using API Gateway and Oracle Functions can automatically scale-up and scale-down resources based on demand, thereby eliminating infrastructure operations.
Secure your APIs using JSON Web Tokens provided by Oracle Identity Cloud Service, Okta, Auth0 and other third-party identity providers. Create APIs that support Cross Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) for web page interoperability.
Rate-limiting for APIs can throttle traffic to back-end services, thereby controlling exposure to the Internet and protecting against denial-of-service attacks.
Design and deploy a SaaS extension for Oracle Fusion Applications using Oracle Visual Builder, Oracle Functions, and Oracle API Gateway.
Prepare, design, and prototype APIs by defining application domain semantics and deciding on the API architectural style.
Create a proxy to authenticate with identity providers and provide access to multiple RESTful services both in the cloud and on-premises.
