Administration

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.
After API Manager activates the managed API, you can make the API available API Portal. 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.
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.
Use API Manager to generate SDK packages for rapid integration of managed APIs into organization applications. You can generate SDK packages that provide a set of resources to enable integration for Java, Android, Javascript, Nodejs, Python, Ruby-on-Rails, C#.NET, ASP.NET5, or C# applications.
You can define API-specific policies to enforce security and access rules. For each managed API, you can configure a rate limit policy, an IP filtering policy, and a privacy policy.
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.
You can create groups of managed APIs and then generate a token for the group to use when invoking any JWT authenticated API in the group. A managed API can belong to one group only.
