Convert API Gateway configuration from XML to a YAML human-friendly format.
API Gateway main configuration is created through Policy Studio in XML format. This configuration can now be converted into a YAML format, edited in an IDE of your choice, and deployed to the API Gateway runtime. The YAML-based configuration allows for a human-friendly format to manage configuration, which facilitates the use of industry standard tooling and enhance the collaboration and operational options. YAML-based configuration enables:
- A better experience with Software Configuration Management (SCM) tooling for managing diffs and merging.
- Easier use of standard tooling in DevOps pipelines.
- Team collaboration with multiple developers working on the same configuration project.
- Environmentalization of any piece of configuration. For example, passwords, certificates.
- Externalization of configuration that naturally belongs in a separate file. For example, scripts, schemas, keys, certificates.
- Use of standard certificate and private key generation tools, and certificate viewing tools.
|Entity Store||The API Gateway’s configuration is also called Entity Store. It is a store of all the entities it takes to configure the API Gateway runtime, for example, the policies and filters. There are now two formats available for the Entity Store: the XML federated configuration and the YAML configuration.|
|XML federated configuration||Consists of a small set of XML files. This can be packaged into a
|YAML||YAML Ain’t Markup Language (YAML) is a descriptive language based on JSON, widely used to describe configurations.|
|YAML configuration||The YAML configuration or YAML Entity Store consists of a large set of YAML files in an easy-to-navigate directory structure. This can be packaged into a standard
|yamles||The CLI client tool for converting, validating, and encrypting YAML configuration.|
