Creating and deleting a managed API

Creating and deleting a managed API

You can create a managed API for any Informatica Cloud
Application Integration
service. By default, the managed API is active and API Portal view for the API is enabled. The name that you assign to the API is part of the API URL.
  1. On the
    API Registry
    page, select
    Available Services
    .
    The
    API Registry
    page list only services for which you can create a managed API.
  2. Click to open the Actions menu of the service to create a managed API for and select
    Create Managed API
    .
    The
    Create Managed API
    page appears.
  3. Enter a name for the API or accept the default name, and click
    Create
    .
    The name and version combination must be unique in the organization. The name can contain up to 50 characters, including any letter on the ASCII table, any digit, and the special characters . _ and -. The name can't contain spaces or any of the following characters: / ` " ' < > & : ~ ! @ # ; % ^ * + = { } | , \ $ ? ( ) .
    API Manager
    creates the managed API. The managed API is listed under
    Managed APIs
    . The service that you created the managed API from is no longer listed under
    Available Services
    .
  4. By default, API Portal view is enabled. To disable API Portal view, clear
    Available on API Portal
    .
    The managed API does not show on the API Portal. API consumers can access the managed API with the Managed API URL.
  5. Optionally, click
    Add to Group
    to add the API to a group.
    You can create a new group and add the API to the group or add the API to an existing group. For more information, see API groups.
  6. If you created the managed API from a service that uses basic authentication, select one or more of the following methods:
    • Basic. The API consumer provides an Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services user name and password for authentication.
    • OAuth 2.0. The API consumer provides an OAuth 2.0 access token to invoke the managed API.
    • JWT - JSON Web Token. The API consumer passes the JWT token as a bearer.
    For more information, see Authentication and authorization.
    To delete a managed API, in the
    API Registry
    page, select the API, click to open the Actions menu, and select
    Delete Managed API
    . The
    Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services
    service on which the API is based is not affected.
    If the API is active, API Manager deactivates the API before it deletes it.
