Use API Manager to manage APIs for your organization. To manage an API, you select an
Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services service and create a managed API for the service. When API Manager creates the managed API, it activates it. You can copy the managed API URL and provide it to your API consumers.
You can customize the URLs of managed APIs so that the API domain name replaces the Informatica domain name as the base URL of the API.
By default, all managed APIs can be accessed through API Portal. You can choose to disable portal access for a managed API. API consumers can use API Portal to access detailed information about APIs so that they can incorporate APIs into their applications. API consumers can also use API Portal to test and debug API execution. For more information about API Portal, see the
API Portal help.
If you want to temporarily make a managed API unavailable, you can deactivate the managed API. Alternatively, you can hide an active managed API from API Portal without deactivating it. For example, during an API test phase, you can remove the display of the managed API from the portal until you are ready to release it to API consumers. When testing is complete, you can display the managed API in the portal again.
You can create different versions of a managed API to support multiple variations of an API. Create a new version of the managed API if you want to expose a variation of it without removing its existing variation. Versioning allows API consumers a grace period to adopt their applications to using the new version.
To stop running the service as a managed API, you can delete the managed API. When you delete the managed API, the
Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services service is not affected.
You can configure basic authentication or JSON Web Token (JWT) authentication for managed Informatica Cloud Application Integration APIs. With basic authentication, the user groups and users that are provided access to the API in Informatica Cloud Application Integration can invoke the API. With JWT authentication, you can generate a token using API Manager or API Portal and use the generated token to invoke the API.
