Getting Started

Here you find all the information about the features of Sensedia API Management.

What is an API management platform?

Sensedia API Management is a powerful tool that speeds up the design, integration, exposure, and monitoring of APIs. It provides business insights coupled with layers of security, analytics, scalability, governance, and much more.

Watch the video below to get a better understanding of what an API Management platform is:

Inside API Management

The menu of Sensedia API Management is organized around 3 stages of the API journey:

  1. Design: where you create and edit your APIs.

  2. Consumption: where you deploy your APIs and define applications and tokens enabled to access them.

  3. Analysis: where you find metrics of the deployed APIs.

Clicking on the links will take you to detailed documentation about the described functions.

API Design

The API creation journey starts at API Design > API Catalog.
Read the APIs documentation to learn about the supported API types and how to create or upload APIs to your Manager.

When creating an API, you establish security policies, traffic control, observability, and transformation using interceptors.
You can view available interceptors and create custom ones under API Design > Interceptors.

Additionally, when creating the API, you define resources and operations and specify the backend that will provide response information.
You can use connectors to communicate directly with some non-HTTP protocols.

API Consumption

The API consumption journey starts at API Design > Plans.
Access the Plans documentation to understand how API consumption plans work.

In the Consumers menu, you create:

In Virtual Hosts, you configure the deployment environments for your APIs:

  • On the Inbound Addresses screen, you define the URL protocol and security;

  • In the Environments screen, you can create different environments to deploy your APIs;

  • In Certificates, you configure the certificate for HTTP inbound addresses.

Metrics Analysis

In the Trace and Health menu, you check data about the requests. Access:

General Trace to monitor calls; Health Checks to check if a particular HTTP resource is working correctly.
