Modern Administration Experience
We have introduced a more visually appealing white background for the API Control Center instead of the traditional dark one. The color scheme matches with the rest of the products offered by TIBCO cloud services and provides a more unified UI experience.
Quick Access to Area Information
Added a link to the API Control Center which allows you to see, at a glance, critical information needed to use the Mashery V3 API. Additionally, the Control Center now displays which Mashery Area, i.e. tenancy, you are managing, which is important if you have multiple areas, e.g. ones for both production and development.
Integrated Links to Portal, Documentation and Support
Remembering important sites and applications is the last thing you want to do when managing your API program. Now you can access, through the API Control Center, links to your developer portal, to the on-line documentation and the Mashery Support site.
Mashery Local 3.1.1 enhancements
For Mashery Local we have added a few operational capabilities related to storage and permissions. We have also made it easier to manage unbounded growth of database logs by introducing a backup/restore process with log rotation and removal.
Enhanced Developer Segmentation
A feature, previously referred to as Roles or Custom Roles has been redefined as Portal Access Groups. This allows grouping of developers for the purpose of exposing different content to them while visiting the portal. Portal Access Groups can be created and managed uniquely with the area and the organizations, enabling sophisticated capabilities for partner segmentation.
API Sharing across Teams and Organizations
Shared services and APIs can now be created and managed in a secure way, with specific individuals managing them, but easily shared, or re-used, by other teams and organizations, but maintaining administrative control.
API Team Support
With the new Distributed API Management feature it’s possible to create multiple administrative organizations in a Mashery area that map to different business units, groups or teams in your company. This provides the option to manage API programs independently of each other, and to do so in a much more secure way, managing multiple defined sets of users and permissions .
Simplified Access to Mashery V3 API
Added the TIBCO Mashery Connector for TIBCO Simplr™, providing a simple way to pull developer data out of Mashery, previously only accomplished using the Mashery API. Now you can do things like pull out developer data and put into a Marketo app or a Google spreadsheet or drive a SurveyMonkey product feedback process. All without programming!
Queries Per Second Reporting (QPS) API
Customers now can get access to Queries per Second (QPS) details for their Area, Developers, and Endpoints. Available through the Mashery Reporting API as a new resource, this new functionality should be particularly helpful to customers seeking to manage capacity, visualize traffic spikes for any of the three objects, or generally understand traffic patterns in a new and interesting way.
Enhanced Developer Management User Experience
We have created a new and improved User Management experience for our API Control Center. The new user management screens will enable you to create, maintain and manage users, applications, package keys and roles with greater ease. The new user interface provides a much better visual experience, new search and filter controls and a more intuitive way of navigating our control center.
OAuth2 protected Reporting API
Reporting API resources are now available through the V3 interface. With the OAuth2 protection of the V3 API, these tools and applications can be used by your admins, business analysts and other data-hungry stakeholders without compromising your API program. The API docs are available at support.mashery.com
Developer Management REST APIs
This is the V3 APIs that lets you make REST calls to manage the Members, Applications, Roles and Package Keys within the API Control Center. The RESTful interface is much easier to interact with and your developers, looking to deliver custom functionality or integrations with the Mashery API, should find it quicker to develop against. The API docs are available at support.mashery.com
API Management REST APIs
This is the V3 APIs that lets you make REST calls to manage your APIs, Packages, Plans and IO Docs. This API is OAuth2 protected, promoting secure sharing of tools and applications to manage your API program. Additionally, the APIs are optimized for DevOps, making it easy to integrate Mashery into your overall API lifecycle processes. The API docs are available at support.mashery.com
Mashery Local 3.1
With this release we have more comprehensive logs included in the Debug utility and advanced configuration options to tune system-level parameters for the Mashery® Local instance. Also we have updated security patches on the Operating System and other internal libraries.
