TIBCO Mashery Local 5.0 is GA

We are pleased to announce that TIBCO Mashery Local 5.0, a cloud-native API gateway, is now generally available!

  • Ultimate control for customers around deployment choices

This release provides flexibility and control to our customers over where and how Mashery Local can be deployed.

The API Gateway can be configured to operate in two modes: hybrid or completely standalone.When Mashery Local is set to operate in hybrid mode, TIBCO Cloud Mashery continues to provide a single pane of glass via the centralized API Control Center for management and analytics. The API Gateway supports deployment in a customer's data center, or cloud environment, to process traffic.

When Mashery Local is set to operate in a completely standalone mode, a new Configuration Manager tool is included to configure API policies, packages, and plans and manage API keys. Customers continue to have access to improved operational intelligence and API analytics via a locally available, and real-time dedicated log service.

  • Optimized for cloud-native deployments, supporting a wide variety of platforms, and orchestration stacks like Kubernetes and Swarm.

The product is available for deployment across a range of platforms: AWS, Azure, GCP and other on-premises environments supporting Kubernetes, Docker Swarm and OpenShift for orchestration tooling. A complete list of supported platforms is available in the release notes

  • Flexible scaling that can tailor to desired API performance characteristics

API Gateway administration teams can flexibly manage and independently scale components that comprise the API Gateway to suit their specific API traffic profile and desired performance characteristics.

  • Faster OAuth token management and synchronization in distributed, highly available environments

This release includes a significantly revamped architecture that drives performance improvements around OAuth tokens synchronization across multi data centers and globally distributed regions.

The product is available immediately for download on edelivery.tibco.com along with detailed installation documentation

Updated Control Center user experiences

New Feature: Modeling and Mocking your APIs

As API management solutions continue to become more and more important for any enterprise, the need to increase connectivity and ease of use in setting up your APIs as early as possible is a must. In order to help you, as our valued customer, in decreasing your API lifecycle time, as well as allow for quicker feedback on the API design, TIBCO Mashery® now comes bundled with the API mocking and modeling capabilities of TIBCO Cloud Integrationtm

TIBCO Cloud Integration comes with an online, zero code API modeler, that allows you to model your JSON specification using a graphical interface. You can start from scratch and define your API using this, or you can bring your own by importing your specifications from file, URL or GitHub. For all functionality available in the API modeler, please click here.

 

Once your API is present in the environment, you can start setting up your mock application with a simple click of a button! It will generate a skeleton API Mock app that allows you to add your simple responses to the API and it will run it physically for other to test and use. In order to support more complex types of API answer, you can switch to advance responses that will allow you to use java script to make your mocked API more dynamic and life like to test out different scenario's, like setting up response filters and more elaborate security schemese in Mashery before you expose the real API.

Every Mashery customer has been given access to TIBCO Cloud Integration with the following plan:

TIBCO Mashery - Model and mock plan
Application Type Application instances
Web Integrator apps 4
Node.js apps 2
Mock apps 5

Feel free to click on each application type to find out more about them, or even better just try them out!

To make it as easy as possible to use this functionality, the home page of the control center has been updated. The top level nagivation now has a grid icon that allows your API manager and administrator to reach these capabilities very quickly. 

The Integration capabilities are part of TIBCO Cloud and to ensure that everyone can use these capabilities, a TIBCO Cloud team needs to be setup by your Mashery account contact, this is a simple, one-time process to setup your account. Instruction on how this works can be accesses here.

If you have any questions about how to proceed, or run into issues setting up your account, you can contact us at support.mashery.com.
