Oracle API Platform Cloud Service (APIP CS) is an API Management Platform for covering the complete API lifecycle. A general overview about the solution is provided in one of my previous blog posts.
In this blog post, I’ll summarize the steps that are needed to setup a first API Gateway Gateway Node.
Before getting started with the Gateway setup, a basic concept needs to be clarified.
Oracle APIP CS support the concept of a so called Logical Gateway, which depicts a logical configuration and management unit for the several Gateway Nodes. A Gateway Node is a physical representation of a API Gateway. It is the runtime component, where APIs are exposed to the outside world and where the defined API policies are enforced, when an API is called by a client.
From a subscription perspective the number of Logical Gateways is the relevant criterium with respect to the occurring costs. No matter, on how many Gateway Nodes are registered to a Logical Gateway.
Before getting started with the installation, a respective Compute Node (OCI, AWS, Azure, On-Premise) instance is needed on which the Gateway Node should be deployed. In my case, I used a OCI Compute instance, which I setup using the OCI console. Read the complete article here.
