Using OAuth in API Integrations


OAuth is often employed in processes requiring permissions to be granted to frontend applications and end users. Yet, what we typically need in API systems integrations is a way to secure connections between the integration middleware and backend systems without a need for any ongoing human interactions. OAuth can be a good choice for that scenario and this article shows how it can be achieved. Read more

What is an API gateway?


In this article, we are going to use Zato in its capacity as a multi-protocol Python API gateway - we will integrate a few popular technologies, accepting requests sent over protocols commonly used in frontend systems, enriching and passing them to backend systems and returning responses to the API clients using their preferred data formats.

How to invoke REST APIs from Zato services


This Zato article is a companion to an earlier post - previously, we covered accepting REST API calls and now we will look at how Zato services can invoke external REST endpoints. Read more

SSH commands as API microservices


This is a quick guide on how to turn SSH commands into a REST API service. The use-case may be remote administration of devices or equipment that does not offer a REST interface or making sure that access to SSH commands is restricted to selected external REST-based API clients only. Read more

Understanding API rate-limiting techniques


Enabling rate-limiting in Zato means that access to Zato APIs can be throttled per endpoint, user or service - including options to make limits apply to specific IP addresses only - and if limits are exceeded within a selected period of time, the invocation will fail. Let's check how to use it all. Read more
