News and Features of WSO2 API Manager 4.3

There is always room for improvement, and that’s also the case with the WSO2 API Manager. WSO2, have launched a new version with multiple new improvements. So let’s explore them!

Short-lived access codes

To boost safety and speed, support for short-lived access codes means you don’t need to store codes for a long time. This helps handle big projects better and keeps our API system running smoothly.

Bringing WSO2 API Manager and WSO2 API platform for Kubernetes (WSO2 APK) together

It creates a unified control center. WSO2 APK is packed with features, acting as a complete data hub. This makes it easy to set up lightweight, container-friendly data hubs using WSO2 APK. It taps into Kubernetes’ power to make managing APIs smoother, making it easier to build scalable, strong, and flexible API setups with less hassle. With this latest version, users can now manage WSO2 APK’s data hub through the API Manager 4.3 control center. Plus, you have the option to use WSO2 API Manager 4.3 as the control center for handling WSO2 APK’s data hub.

The AI-powered API marketplace assistant (Beta)

When users talk to the assistant in everyday language, they get recommendations for APIs that fit them perfectly. This makes finding the right API quick and easy, ensuring they pick the best one. For example, if a developer is making an app that changes money and needs an API for it, they can just type, “I need an API to change money.” The AI assistant will show all the APIs that can help, even if they didn’t use the exact tech words (like USD to LKR).

API product versions

This lets us manage different versions of our API products better. It helps keep things organized and makes managing the life of APIs easier.

Azure active directory (Azure AD) integration and better control

WSO2 has added Azure AD as another way to keep keys safe, making our system even more secure. They have also made it easier to control who can do what in the Admin Portal and Developer Portal, making things safer and more organized.

Improved diagnostics and rules

New tools help us understand how well our APIs are doing, and fix any issues faster. Plus, we can now set rules for APIs in more detail, which makes them safer and more customizable.

OpenAPI 3.1.0 support

WSO2 is keeping up with the latest rules in the industry by supporting OpenAPI 3.1.0. This makes sure the APIs are made to the newest standards, which makes them work better with other systems and gives developers a better time.
