By SWETHA SRIDHARAN posted Wed October 30, 2019 05:28 PM

We are excited to share with you the latest release of API Connect and Datapower that has addressed 83 APARS and ships cool features.

You can locate the latest release notes here: IBM API Connect & IBM DataPower Gateway

Release Highlights:

OIDC user registry UI support

We know how important it is to secure your APIs especially through OIDC. Previously, you were dependent on the developer toolkit CLI to create an OIDC user registry that could involve a deeper learning curve. But now, we have simplified this experience by providing the UI support on API Manager and Cloud Manager. Moreover, we do support a wide range of providers to enable multi factor authentication.


API Designer Enhancements

API Designer with LTE is enabling developers to develop and test APIs on their own laptop. We are continuing our efforts to enable you and your developers to work independently. With this release, the API creation wizard has been enhanced to support different scenarios.

Lightweight Analytics Ingestion

This a truly valuable enhancement that provides deployment flexibility and less core requirements for analytics through ingestion only deployment for offloading translating to fewer pods/resources.

Improved APIGW Policies

Following our promise with the launch of our highly performant DataPower API Gateway (APIGW) and  out-of-the-box policies as part of Fix Pack 7 (blog post with demo here), we are consistently working on improving our out-of-the-box policies as part of this Fix Pack 8.

You can limit  the number of retry for sending failure bulk activity logs to prevent storage and capacity overload on analytics.

JSONata support has been extended to assembly Switch and Redact action.
