Getting Started With the WSO2 API Cloud

Is iPaaS solving the right problems? Not knowing the fundamental difference between iPaaS and dPaaS could cost you down the road. Brought to you in partnership with Liaison Technologies.

Few weeks ago, I wrote a blog post on "Getting started with WSO2 App Cloud". Intention of writing it was to line up some of the screencasts we have done and published which helps you to use the WSO2 App Cloud.

Couple of weeks after we started publishing App Cloud videos, we started publishing API Cloud videos too. Intention of this blog post is to introduce those screencasts we have added.

WSO2 API Cloud provides you the API Management service in the cloud. You can create and publish APIs very easily using it and it is powered by the well established product of WSO2 product stack, WSO2 API Manager. If you already have an account in WSO2 Cloud or wso2.com, you can login to WSO2 Cloud and navigate to the API Cloud.

First thing you would do, when you go to the API Cloud is, creating and publishing an API. Following screencast will help you on how to do it.

After publishing your API, it appears in your API store. If you advertise your API store to others they can subscribe to the APIs and invoke them. Next screencast shows how to that.

You may have a very promising API created and published, now available in your API store. But, for it to be successful, you need to spread the word. To do that, WSO2 API Cloud have some useful social and feedback channels. You can allow the users to rate your API, comment on them, share using social media and also start interactive discussions via the forums. Following tutorial showcases those capabilities.

For a developer to use your API easily, its documentation is important. Therefore, WSO2 API Cloud allows you to add documentation for your API. There are several options such as inline documentations, uploading already available docs and pointing to online available docs. This video showcases the documentation features.

We will keep adding more screencasts/tutorials to our API Cloud playlist. Stay tuned and enjoy experiencing the power of WSO2 API Cloud.

Discover the unprecedented possibilities and challenges, created by today’s fast paced data climate and why your current integration solution is not enough, brought to you in partnership with Liaison Technologies.
