What is API-Management?
API-Management offers you the possibility of administering diverse programming interfaces (also known as application programming interfaces) centrally. Alongside administration, API-Management serves the control and provision of interfaces. In this way API’s are mostly catalogued, versioned, documented and finally published internally or externally. The resulting catalog contains an overview of all available interfaces.
The publishing of the respective API takes place via gateways. A gateway is upstream of the actual implementation in the backend and serves as a centralised collection point for requests.
