Why do you need an API portal for the Kong API gateway?
Kong is one of the most popular open-source API gateways available on the market and is used by a wide array of industries, from real estate to education management. If you are using Kong for your API management, then you should consider making your APIs available via an API portal to grow the number of customers and partners within your API ecosystem.
Kong Enterprise ships with a developer portal included. Unfortunately, the community version does not include the developer portal, and many organizatons struggle to get their APIs exposed. Those enterprise customers using the API portal often state that the portal is very developer-centric and does not offer an experience or API products for business managers, who are often the decision maker on whether the API should be used. Customers also complain that a technical resource is needed to configure and run the portal.
If you are running Kong, you can connect the Apiable Portal in a few minutes without needing a developer. You can then bundle your APIs into Products and make them consumable with the option to monetize should you wish to do so.
API teams choose Apiable because:
- It's secure - we help you secure your APIs with our OAuth 2.0 Server
- It's monetizable - realise your revenue objectives
- It's as s Service - don't worry, we'll run and host it for you
