API Management

Our API management platform makes campus APIs easily discovered, well-documented, easy to use, and secure.

Together, the API Central developer portal, the AWS API Gateway at gateway.api.berkeley.edu, and our DataPower fine-grained authorization appliance form the Berkeley API management platform.

When to use API Management

  • You have an API you want to be easily discovered and used by developers in the campus community
  • You want a campus standard hostname for your API or want to obfuscate its host
  • You need to secure access to your API using secret tokens
  • You need to rate-limit calls to your API to protect against mistakes or abuse
