Create a Policy Studio project

A Policy Studio project is a design-time store of API Gateway configuration on a local file system, which can be deployed to a running API Gateway instance on a server.

Get started with sample policies

Configure policies

Learn how to configure policies manually, and how to configure global policies and policy assemblies.

Schedule policy execution

Schedule the execution of any policy on a specified date and time.

Configure messaging services

Configure API Gateway to work with Apache ActiveMQ, IBM WebSphere MQ, and other messaging systems that support the JMS standard.

Configure caching

Learn how to configure both local and distributed caches in API Gateway, and how to configure a policy to cache responses.

Configure Key Property Store data

Use a Key Property Store to store data that can be referenced by policies running on an API Gateway.

Configure system alerts

Configure alert destinations for API Gateway system alerts.

Import and export API Gateway configuration

Import and export configuration data to share it in a development environment and to manage differences and references.

Compare and merge API Gateway configurations

Compare the currently loaded API Gateway configuration with a configuration stored in a deployment package (.fed file) and merge any differences.

Upgrade log analysis

Detect and analyze upgrade issues in Policy Studio.

Select configuration values at runtime

A selector is a special syntax that enables API Gateway configuration settings to be evaluated and expanded at runtime based on metadata values (for example, from message attributes, a Key Property Store (KPS), or environment variables).
