Overall Satisfaction with WSO2 API Manager

WSO2 API Manager is used to transform STL Product APIs into TMForum Compliant APIs. It is also used for TLS Termination, Authentication, and Rate Limiting purposes. All STL APIs are published to the external world via WSO2 API Manager only.
  • Authentication based on OAuth 2.0 and HTTP Basic Authentication.
  • Rate Limiting applied at different levels like Subscriber, API, Resource and Backend.
  • Monitoring by exporting the metrics in Prometheus and traces in Jaeger.
  • Mediation to perform transformation, orchestration etc.
  • reduce number of portals for configuration like admin, carbon etc.
  • improve certificate handling in case of Kubernetes based deployment.
  • provide out of the box dashboards for Grafana and Kibana.
  • provide more connectors out of the box.
  • Saved almost 500 man-days effort in publishing the TMForum Compliant APIs via WSO2 API Manager compared to publishing the APIs by modifying the Product itself.
  • Saved training cost as the self paced training provided by WSO2 are sufficient.
  • Able to deliver the project in 30% less time as compared to normal project delivery timelines.

Would you buy WSO2 API Manager again?


WSO2 is a unique product that provides pre-integrated components like Gateway, Integrator, identity management, etc. Hence it is best suited when the requirement is not just only publish the APIs but also to secure and transform the APIs. WSO2 can be an overhead if only Gateway is required, as there are other very lightweight gateways available in the market.
